Not sure what to say?

An icon for Pickens county for many years! It saddened me to read of Mrs. Juanita's passing. Any time we visited Refuge Baptist Church and she was there she never missed a chance to be so nice to everyone. Prayers and sympathy to the family.

Charlene, I am sorry for you and your family with the loss of your dear Mother.

Juanita was always very sweet to me! Her smile and gentle voice always warmed my heart! Prayers for God to be with her family and friends during this time and in the many days to come!
