Thanks Winecoff reader. Read your article and thought, that's what I wanted to do but couldn't contact anyone who knew them, so just did research on internet. Did you see the interview with the nurse who was in charge of the morgue that night. Search for Winecoff Fire and interview with Great Aunt May. She tell when the bodies started coming in and how horrible it was and by the time the last ones came in she was just numb to her emotions and when she finally announced that there were 118 identified and one other one, the couple behind her said, "That one is our son." and how she never forgot that moment and tried to always remain professional afterward in all her dealings with hospital business becasue you never know who can hear you. It was heartbreaking. I stayed at the Ellis a few years ago, which is where I first heard this story. As for Sister Ruby, bless her heart, I think she was replying to another column.
Sister Ruby, thanks for the critique. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot to you too, my sister. Just wanted to let you know I laughed like hell. Didn't the Judge tell you not to write letters to the editor when you were on mushrooms. Unfortunately, I seem to lack the mental capacity to make the connection between my letter and your comment to it. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the article, but I hope you think of those three girls next time you check into a hotel.
