  1. I stopped at Cedar Cliff Grocery many times in my youth to pick up a few groceries on the way home from work. My Mom and Dad, Francis and Blaine Huntley, were in the same age group as Lola Mae and Clifton and they knew each other well. Really miss those special years when times were simpler and people more accepting. My deepest sympathy to the family.

  2. I will miss seeing Little Miss Lola sitting in the hall smileing at every one that passed by and holding our hands she was a very sweet little lady…she will be missed…

  3. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your dear sweet beautiful mother. My mom loved her like a sister. I know they are laughing and catching up on things in Heaven. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
