Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry to hear about your loss. It’s certainly not an easy thing to face. I have been there myself.
    Lawrence, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you.
    Jeanette Grooms (Cont. Teves)

  2. My heart goes out to you all at this time. Aunt Elva was a special person. When I was little, the thing I remember most, is that she was always trying to ‘feed me’. When I think of this it makes me smile. That’s what I’d like to remember.GOD Bless you all.

  3. Elaine& Jerry and all the family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. We did not hear about Mrs Bailey until after the funeral.
