Shelia ,Deborah

I have many good memories of your mother. She made the best vegetable soup.
She always worked hard for both of you .
I remember many trips with your mom and dad driving used cars back for them.
I know they are both with our Lord now.

Love wayne,

Deborah, Shelia,
We have so many good memories of your mother over the years.
I learned after working @ BRG & met Deborah who her mother was & how close she was to my mother living not far from us in West End!
Then Steve & I enjoyed her garden veggies for years & visiting with her! Such a sweet woman. She will be missed!

Im very sorry to hear about Ms. Elsie Mae passing. I always looked forward to talking with her when she came to Dr. Allgoods office. What a worker she was!! Her stories of how she worked in the yard, garden,
and all of her canning veges amazed me. She will be missed.
