kudos to these authors

Several of the people pictured have provided much support and information on the Free family. Here are just a few things Mary Decker, Mae B Rose, Lory M Free and I have done for the Free history over the years. I would like to thank all who have ever helped in any way and hope to express that gratitude at regular intervals. Don't let me forget anyone. Email me with reminders of those to thank.
