Not sure what to say?

Every moment I spent with Mama Locke was special because we connected and I felt her love for me. Thank you Mama for that. I'm glad you liked the goodies I sent you from Hawaii and thanks for all those moments on stage next to you and drinking yellow wine in Poodies bus.

Having met Mama Locke years ago at an Event, the joy I felt instantly by her warmth and 'Specialness' will never be forgotten !

I'm so blessed that I got to know Mama Locke and Poodie. May the Lord Bless us all.

You will be missed.

Mama Locke was such a spirited, brilliant, fun woman who had lived such a full life full of adventure and experience and she shared those stories. I know she really missed her husband, and her son Poodie, a lot. She's with them now. I will always remember her like it was yesterday. Love ya, Mama!!

Gene and I always enjoyed being with Jim and Gloria at Linden Hall. We miss them both. Our prayers to the family.

Dillon, I'm so sorry to her about your grandma. I know what your going through and it's hard. I remember you talking about her and I did have the chance to meet her. She was a wonderful and sweet woman. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this sad time. Take care Dillon, if you need anything I'm here for you.

We are so very sorry for your loss. I personally never had the privilege of knowing Gloria but I have heard countless wonderful words about her. She will be greatly missed by all of you but rest assured she is at home now in our Lord's loving arms. God bless you all. Mike & Carla

Prayers, Light and loving Memories
