  1. Jana, Zachary and Mitzi,
    Miss Lottie was a very special lady me. She was a christian woman who always saw the best in everyone, and was so positive about everything. It’s no wonder everyone loved her so. Your loss is heaven’s gain, and Jesus only takes the best. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.
    Love, Paulette & Buck

  2. Jana & Dawn,

    Your Mother was a very special lady to so many people. I have so many special memories of spending time with your family. I can’t even begin to list them all. Lottie always had the best advice and always took time to listen to any problem no matter how small. A hug from your Mom always made everything better! I know this is a sad and difficult time for you and family. But I also know Lottie is having a great time in Heaven right now with our Dads. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Love You, Tammy

  5. Sorry for your loss. Lottie was a very good neighbor and friend. We will miss her in our lives.God bless all of you.

  6. Dear Family, I am Graces Jacksons Granddaughter that she raised, I just now heard that My Aunt Lottie had left to be with the Lord. I know for those that have to stay here for awhile longer, before we can join her, this is a very sad time for you, our prayers are with you all. I just love to remember that she was the one that would tell me to ask all the questions i wanted to because how else was i going to learn. That advice has carried through my life and will continue to the rest of my life. She was right the only dumb question was the one you didn’t ask. May you find the peace only the Lord can give you at this time Love Pat and Alan Goode

  7. Jana –
