Ray: Forty-four years. (laughter) All my life. (laughter)
09:38 Payne: Well, now, were you a single, independent woman or did you marry?
Ray: No. No. Still single.
Payne: Still a single, independent woman. And so, did that mean that you had a group of women friends with whom you took vacations …
Ray: No. I didn’t take vacations. I just had a bunch of friends here in New Albany.
Payne: And what kind of things did you do?
Ray: Rode around on Sunday afternoon with whoever had the car. (laughter)
Payne: Where did you ride to?
Ray: Just around town (laughter)
Payne: Well, Aunt Marguerite remained a single, independent woman as she … as she called it and she said that she just never met a man who was as good as her brothers.
Ray: That’s probably right. (laughter) So, is she dead?
Payne: She died four years ago.
Ray: Is that right?
Payne: Yes, at ninety-two.
Ray: My goodness, how old was she?
Payne: She was ninety-two when she died. So, she would have been … she would have been about thirteen years older than you.
Ray: I remember her.
Payne: Yes … but we liked … she …. She talked about her decision not to marry and she just said, “I never found anybody as good as my brothers.” (laughter)
