    Sorry to read of your mother's passing. I used to mow her yard many years ago when you all lived next to R- Street Grocery. So glad to read of her involvement in AWANA and church. I'm sure she made a wonderful contribution with her upbeat personality. Just wanted to share my condolences to you all in her passing. It is always good to remember a Life Well Lived.

    Michelle, Marty and families, I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a dear sweet lady and will be greatly missed. I enjoyed working with her at the Lawrence County Museum. I know she truly loved her family and the Lord. You're all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Michelle & family we are so sorry for your loss. We were so glad we got to meet your Mom & go on some Band activities with her. You Mom was a sweet lady. We won't be able to come on Thursday but will be praying for you all. You all will be in our thoughts & prayers in the coming days & weeks after the funeral. You will have your memories of your Mom but you will miss her a lot. It will be 2 years in December for me but I still catch myself wanting to call her & tell her something we did. It won't be easy but God will be there with you the whole journey without your Mom. You know where she is & that is a comforting thought, Take care & keep in touch. You Michelle are a special friend to us.
