    Alice & Family, Please accept my most sincere sympathies for the loss of your Mother, Grandmother, & Great Grandmother. I have the nicest memories of her & Mr. Bissette at Zebulon Baptist Church from 60+ years ago. She was a nice lady and Mr. Bissette was an
    amazing craftsman and skilled artist, who was unequalled in Eastern Wake County. God bless all of you, Bob Brantley-Greenville,SC
