  1. Margie,
    With love I express sympathy to you in the loss of your mother. She was always such sweet joy when I visited in your home. Her welcome greetings were always clear, even before getting into the house and then her joyous, friendly nature was evident the whole time. She was just amazing! The same sweet traits are obvious with you. God bless you during this special time.
    Love, Mae

  2. I am sorry to hear about Miss Daisy. She was such a sweet and loving woman. She loved my daddy (James)and that made it easy for me to love her unconditionally! She always made me feel like her grandchild, not a step-grandchild, and for that I am eternally grateful. I will miss her dearly. May God be with you through your time of sorrow.
    Love, Brenda Pruitt

  3. Miss Daisy was such a ray of sunshine in my life. There was never a time that I spoke with her that I hung up the phone without a smile on my face and feeling love in my heart. She will be missed by myself as well as many others. I am sorry for your loss, and may God carry you through your sorrow.
    Love Joanie Johnson

  4. Hearing of the recent loss of Miss
    Daisy, my heart feels empty. She was such a lovable person. I will miss our chats and that innocent giggle of hers. I know that this is a hard time for you, but I know your faith in God will give you the strength to go on.
    Love, Trish Boncore
