Debbie, I am so very sorry to hear about your mom. I always liked your parents. The last time I saw them was in the elevator at Catawba Memorial Hospital. My dad was a patient and I lucked up to see them in the elevator. What can I do to help? Greta

I thought a lot of Rhoda having know her from early in my life. My daddy would walk me as a youngster to Bill Prices Drug store where she worked. She always knew I loved vanilla ice cream and I got my cone from her. She treated me so nice. I will never forget how kind she was to me . I am sad she has left this world but surely she is heaven and is there chatting with my momma and daddy. Loved her dearly. Michael Paysour.
