  1. Tink will always be remembered as one of my favorite aunts. We talked the night she went to the hospial and one of the last things she told me was that she loved me. I share your great loss.

  2. We are saddened by the passing of our friend and neigbor Frances. She was a beautiful lady and a true southern Belle. She will be missed by all who knew her.

    We were out of town yesterday and most of today and are sorry to have missed the service for her. Our prayers are with the Jordan family.
