    Nita and family This is late in coming but I just learned today that your mom passed away almost a year ago. I am certainly very sorry to hear this and I know that it will sadden my mom as well. I hope with this passage of time that your hearts have begun to heal. I am so thankful now that we spent time with you all the summer before she passed away. She was quite a lady!!

    I have been Mildred's Sunday School teacher for many years and enjoyed having her in our class and on our outings. She always had a beautiful smile and words of encouragement. I regret that I was unable to attend today's service. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I too will miss her but look forward to seeing her again one day. Sarah Norris

    We last saw Mimi at Carolina Bar-B-Que and she was full of life in her beautiful blue blouse. She was always smiling and she was a true inspiration to growing old gracefully. We will surely miss her!
