Mike, Jan and Tim, remembering great times with your family and mine. I can't even remember how far back we go. Loved your sweet mom so much. One of the nicest ladies ever. Grateful to have seen her one last time at Teeny's service. Her sweet voice "girl" hadn't changed a bit! I know all the folks are having a great time up there. Hugs and prayers to all. Carol

Nita was such a lovely lady and wonderful friend. When I was in Chicago for 6 months taking care of my Brother, she would phone and tell me she was praying for me. I first met her, when she was helping in the children's Sunday school at Baptist Temple. I will miss her greatly.
