Oh, how it saddens my heart at the passing of Inez. Loved her and Bro Haynes so much. She was such an example of a Godly woman with a servant's heart. My sincere heartfelt condolences to her family now and the days ahead. She will be missed by many. We have such good memories from Forrest Avenue Baptist Church in Biloxi. Anytime we ever visited Biloxi would go by Dillards to see her.
Inez, rest in peace and go High upon that mountain. We will miss you here.
Love

Aunt Inez was an amazing woman and when I think of her, I think of Proverbs 31 ! She lived that life,my mom loved her so much too. I will miss her. RIP love Deborah

During Diannes heart surgery we met Inez in the waiting room. She was very sweet and kind to us. She made sure everyone was comfortable in the waiting room.
We are so sorry for the loss of your mom. We know she is in heaven with her Lord.
God bless you all,
Don and Sharon Smart
