    My heart is broken. Mother and I loved Tiny so much. I am so blessed that we were able to have lunch with her last week and say our goodby’s. I am happy that her suffering is over and she is with our Lord

    Right now I just can’t think of anything to say except, ya’ll, Tiny and Joan are in my mind, thoughts, prayers, heart and soul. I know what you’re going through, but at least she and mom cannot decide to use my head as an experiment for “Tiny’s” Perms anymore. I should have just learned to run and hide for days. I doubt I see you right now, I’m just getting over 12 wks of Flu/Pneumonia, but getting stronger and stronger. I love ya’ll.

    It saddened our hearts to hear of your loss and we wanted you to know you’re in our thoughts and prayers. May the God of all comfort assign peace to you and comfort you with his promise in his written Word. Soon he will wipe all tears from pain away and reunite us with our dear loved ones in the future. Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:3 & 4.

    Precious memories with Tiny, Bobby and Lee O’Neal at the “spur of the moment” fish fries at our house. Sending lots of love and prayers to all of her special family.
