Memories Timeline


  1. It is with great honor that me and my family write to you with our sincere sympathy. Our Great Aunt was a loving, kind, gentle and true Southern Lady. My family will surely miss her as we all felt so close and dear when we were with her. She was truly a supportive lady and was so understanding that we just all used her for our grandmother. I know she is a wonderful Christian lady and is resting in peace with God. We will continue to pray for peace and healing for each of you as you deal with daily life during these very difficult times. May God Bless and keep all of you. Annette, Raynette, Marne’, Jeff and Dylan
