Gary, Cindy and Ken, I am so sorry I was not available to share in the celebration of Mrs Beckler's life. She was such a special lady in many ways. I have such fond memories of our families through the years.

To all of Jaunita's Family,
I'm so sorry for your loss. I can remember how Jaunita always had a smile, she was such a fun person to be around. I remember her going to LBW with me so many years ago, she was taking a few courses at the college, even though she was older than myself at the time she was right there for me, she was my inspiration as to what you could accomplish in life. I will always remember her as the beautiful person she was inside and out.
I pray for all her family, Pat, Charles and her children through this time of great loss,

Nita and Lenny added so much to our town. Church, music, choir, UMW, plus BLACKMON'S Shoe Store, that actually included ladies apparel, fabric and good conversation will always be remembered.
