We enjoyed our visits with Mrs. Kelley when we would see her at China Grove Church. I would always ask her how all of her girls were doing. We know you loved her and that you will miss her very much.

I had the honor of meeting Ms.Ida when my mother, Patricia Davis became her room mate at Park Manor. They became fast friends,talked for hours looked out for each other,shared their walkers and wheelchairs! On the last night that my mom was in Park Manor she became very ill and it was Ms. Ida that took care of her, for that I will always be grateful. She was a special lady and even though we only knew her for a very short time she will forever remain in my heart for the special person she was. My mom finished her journey in April and I am sure both of these special ladies have been catching up and meeting each others families. May "Our" Angels Rest in Peace and remain Eternal friends. Love, Hugs and Prayers to all of Ms. Ida's family. I am truly blessed to have known such a wonderful lady.

May she rest in peace and rise in glory. Our Lord will ease the pain of your grief. Mothers leave a very permanent imprint in our hearts and shape us as women. With our love and sympathy, Karolyn, Bill and family
