No one could have ever asked for a better Mother-in-Law. She was truly my Mother. I learned about the Lord from her and Daddy Mullis. I will miss you more than words can say. I hate your suffering was so terrible. It gives me comfort knowing you are whole and rejoicing in heaven. Love Forever, Sherry

She was a precious lady who had Faith that would move a mountain. My love and prayers go out to all of the family. We know she is with the Lord. She never lost sight of God's Love and shared how much the Lord had done for her. She is walking with the Lord and praising him for all his love and mercy.

I remember Cora when she use to teach my Sunday School Class over 60 yrs ago at a little church in Mt. Holly, Freewill Baptist Church. Both Cora and Doc were in my dad's class (Kyle Robertson) She was a dear sweet lady and I have not forgotten her lessons.
