    A very special friend from Ayden will miss you forever. I have traveled in 6 countries, made friends in each, and in each, when my thoughts turned to home, I would always think of the good, fun, times you and my family would share. Thank you, for being such a wonderful person. A very dear friend, Billy Hardee (AKA rootabega) and Wilma

    Only knew her as "the glasses lady" but she was always so kind and helpful. I loved her smile and we always talked about her beloved cats may she rest in peace with a purring kitten in her lap.
