Dear Editor,

How sad to read of the passing of Sissy Davis, who was without adoubt one of Brookhaven and Wesson’s most outstanding personalitiesand cooks.

I got to know Sissy, her husband, Don, and their sons when Imoved to Brookhaven and into the Inez Hotel in September 1989. Theyall became a part of my “family away from home.” I am convincedthat a steady supply of Sissy’s famous fried chicken livers, mashedpotatoes and gravy helped see me through a serious illness 11 yearsago.

Some of my fondest memories of Brookhaven will always be of theInez, both the hotel and the restaurant. I know Sissy left the Inezkitchen some time ago, but for me, and I’m sure others, she willalways be there – bigger than life in our hearts and souls.

Much love to Don and the family.
