Dear Cousins,
I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your sweet Mother. I will always remember her laughing and smiling, our walks to the old place at the mountain and how Grandma Maggie would be so happy to see her. I know you are sad to see her pass - but just imagine her smile when she is greeted on the other side.
Hugs & Love to you all,
Sabrina Wingfield Biddle

My sincere condolences on the loss of Mrs Clifton. On several occasions, I was able to visit with Ms Maggie and talk with her about her experiences of living at Snow Creek. I was grateful to be able to attend many of the Sunday luncheons at the Snow Creek home-place with Reeves and the sisters to hear their stories and receive their fellowship. This is a time that I will never forget. As archivist for Henry County, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to have know this special family and be part of their lives.
