  4. Dear Family,
    You will never know how my heart is breaking over the loss of Mrs Robinson. I worked at Asheville Arthritis until a month ago. She was my favorite patient there. She always showed me so much love and I will always cherish the Christmas gifts she gave me. I did come by the funeral home early to say my goodbyes. I was glad I could be with her by myself for a few minutes. Please know I am thinking of you all during this time.

    God Bless,

    Pam Coleman

  5. We send our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. My father, Jack Luther, and my sister Elaine Luther, often spoke about her, and their many visits and cards they exchanged, before their deaths. My grandmother was Germey Plemmons Luther, sister of Troy Plemmons. I’m sorry to say I didn’t get to know Edith very swell. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. On behalf of my sister Janice Moore and my brother, Charles Luther we are thinking about. Sincerely Joyce Luther-BAll
