I am so sorry for your loss, Larry and Anna. You had many sweet stories of this dear lady, and I could tell how much you loved her. You have many great memories to hang on to.

Love you and praying God's sweet peace will surround you.

Cecil and Doris were both very supportive of Veale Creek Baptist Church and of our youth activities. They were good friends of my parents as well. I am attaching an old picture (probably about1955 or so) of a gathering of the people. I don't have Cecil or Doris tagged but I have Larry named along with some of my family. If anyone would like a copy, I could send it or Larry Miller probably has a copy as well.

We have many memories of all the great times at Veale Creek Baptist Church. Also the times at Bible School and Sunday School. What a wonderful family.
