bMy condolences to all the family, and loved ones of Starr's. I so remember back in the early 50's when she and my sister were close friends, then as we all married and some of us left Morenci, she was one that was never forgotten. She was such a giving, loving person. God has taken his Angel home. She will be greatly missed here on earth. Bobbie Basham Burns.
