I thank God for you, the Mama that He intended me to have. You meant everything to me. I love you and miss you tremendously, but am so grateful you are now healed and in the arms of JESUS. Thank you Mama for all you are. Love, Charlotte

To the Davis family,
I just saw this, and I'm sorry for you having to loose your mom. Hope you have been able to smile more than cry by now. Miss you guys.

A Reminiscence

YES, thou art gone! and never more
Thy sunny smile shall gladden me;
But I may pass the old church door,
And pace the floor that covers thee.

May stand upon the cold, damp stone,
And think that, frozen, lies below
The lightest heart that I have known,
The kindest I shall ever know.

Yet, though I cannot see thee more,
'Tis still a comfort to have seen;
And though thy transient life is o'er,
'Tis sweet to think that thou hast been;

To think a soul so near divine,
Within a form so angel fair,
United to a heart like thine,
Has gladdened once our humble sphere.

Charlotte and family
I loved working with Ida and visiting with her. She was such a great teacher when I worked with her due to her patience along with just being herself. She will be greatly missed by all. Love and prayers to you all. Vera Staggs Henk

Dear Charlotte & Crumley family,
Ida was a very sweet lady. I worked with her and she taught me many things in life. She is in God's hands now where she will be taken well care of. Know that she is not hurting anymore and smilling at everone she sees.
Love to all of you.
