*Author’s Note: Jimmy Lee Webb was my dear cousin and he will be missed. A few years older than I, he was a kind, soft-spoken man and I knew him well because our family was a close family. Born in the South, in Hamilton, Alabama to my dear Aunt Beulah Rye, my mother’s cousin, (who, by the way, was a daughter to the famous Jimmy Rye of Rye Pottery fame) and Uncle Rube Webb, my daddy’s brother, he moved ”up north” many years ago but he never completely lost his ”soft southern drawl!” Rest in peace my dear cousin, I will always love you and miss you. Judy Webb Mays
