Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. I am sure she had quite a group gathered to meet her. Mom(Nancy Perkins) and Grandpa and Grandma(Harlace and Ruth Ponsler) were among them, I am sure. I will always remember coming to get our taxes done.
With deepest sympathy,
Tony and Dina Sherrill and family
