    Ethel has been a friend and neighbor to me and my family for many years. My children and grandchildren call her Gramma Ethel because she welcomed them into her home and loved them. We will miss her caring spirit and her sense of humor! May God bless her family whom she dearly loved and spoke of often.

    You have my condolences on the death of your mother. She was an excellent cook and cooked the best greens ever! She was a dear cousin to my stepfather Robert Earle Vereen and my mother Maurice Vereen. She will be missed greatly!
