Thomas, Willie’s dear friends Charles and Cornelia Henry, next is Frances Kopp from St. Louis (Leonard Levy’s sister), Willie Morris, myself, then your mom, Martha Glenn Cofield, next to me (but can’t be seen in this image). And last but not least, the character that was your father, Jack Cofield.” –Stacy Doolittle
