When my Christmas card was returned, I began to wonder about Meme, tried calling her old number, and then resorted to looking for obits. She and I were freshmen suitemates at Queens College in Charlotte, and we reconnected about 6 years ago when I began consulting with the Decatur City Schools. I am so sorry to lose her; we talked on the phone from time to time. I'd love to hear from her children. Flo Denny Durway, Raleigh, NC 919-846-5757

I hadn't known Meme for very long, but her spirit and her attitude affected me in so many wonderful ways. The love of Christ shown through her so brightly and beautifully! I am so grateful for her, and so blessed to have had her influence my life.

To the Dupes Family,
Meme and Ted were great friends and neighbors to my dad J B Snider until his death in 2008. I was saddened to hear of her passing.

Meme was such a precious person and named rightly so after her dear mother, a true southern lady. Our prayers go out to you all. Heaven is a little brighter and what a reunion they are having there. We love you all.

Dearest cousins,
A light never goes out that has kindled others. I have been so blessed being part of the family and from the kindling of Meme & Ted's lights. Ah, if we could only know what Meme sees now! Love much, janefaith
