ADD A MEMORY
Ellen Montgomery

I just read of the passing of Comolette a few minutes ago. One of my earliest memories of Comolette was her beautiful, bright red hair. Another beautiful memory of her from my youth that has carried through to now is her huge smile and her laughter. She always welcomed me and made me feel special from the time I was a little girl, especially after the loss of my Mother. Comolette was blessed to have had a daughter who was totally dedicated to her and loved her. May your hearts be comforted and peace be with you all. Please accept my sincerest sympathy for her passing. I join you in rejoicing that she has "gone home" to be with Our Lord to one day be reunited with family and friends.
In Jesus' love,
Ellen, Buddy and Family
