My heart is broken that you are gone.... but i know you are...

Dear Henry,Sissy and Squeaky. I am sorry for the loss of your Mother.. My heart is heavy with this writing. I was blessed to know the love that this woman carried in her heart.. I know that she loved me as if I was her own. It has been one of my life's blessings to have been a part of her life. And her children. May God comfort you in this time of need and send his blessings... In Jesus name I pray.. Amen.

Betty was a long time friend and sister in the Lord. We were close like family, she will truly be missed.

My deepest heartfelt condolences to Della, Shelia, Nick, Donna and the the rest of the family. Mrs. Jones was like a second mother to me. I called her mom and no matter where we were she always told me she loved me. She always gave the best advice and I always heeded it. After I let my hair go naturally white she told me if I ever colored my hair that old ugly red again she would beat my behind....and I believe she would have. I know she is in heaven now with her loved ones and I can...

Jones family I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Mrs.Jones. She was the best neighbor and friend. Praying for comfort to you all. I have some wonderful, lifelong, memories of her that I will hold near and dear to my heart. Paul and I loved her dearly. God Bless you all.
