I am so sorry for your loss. Praying God will provide comfort and peace that can only come from Him
I am so sorry for the loss. Ms. Rose was always so kind and sweet and was a very knowledgeable person. I am thankful for the opportunity to meet her and hear about how she had traced genealogy records and we were related way down the line! She loved her family and I know they will miss her dearly. I am praying for you all.
Aunt Dink was a very special lady. I have lived in Tennessee for the last 34 years and have not been able to visit. I’m sorry I did not get to see her as I would have liked. My condolences and prayers are with her family.
