It was a blessing and pleasure to be a part of your mother’s care team. You are a beautiful family.
Much Love and Blessings!!!
We love you and will miss you, Granny Mamaw. Heaven needed a Little Lady up there who knows how make the world’s best pound cake, fudge, and other out of this world delights- dished up with immense love and a mischievous wink.

Sandra and Greg, my thoughts are with you and all of your family as you lay Erleen to rest.
What a fine lady Aunt Earlene was! She was an impeccable role model to me, my sister and many other young women who looked up to her! Most of all I admired her for always having the sweetest, kindest spirit as well as being the most thoughtful person I ever met! Heaven rejoiced with her arrival.
Sorry to hear of Mrs. Cody’s passing. She’ll be missed by the whole neighborhood, having been a fixture here for so long.

MY WIFE , JOYCE AND I TRIED TO VISIT HER WHEN WE COULD DRIVE OVER FROM OUR HOME IN HENDERSONVILLE. WE ARE BOTH NOW 91 AND LIMITED IN OUR TRAVELS BUT WE WILL PRAY FOR ALL OF YOU TO DAY.
I grew up at Enka Baptist Church and Earlene was always there, along with Sandra. She was a faithful Christian
lady and Sandra, I’m so very sorry for your loss. She will be missed, but we’ll rejoice with her again someday in
