Jennifer,

Please know my thoughts are with you. I hear Flora was a real lady. I know you must have been very proud of your mother. She was lucky to have such a loving daughter.

May God give you peace at this difficult time.

Ricky and Jennifer,

When my family and I moved to Knoxville in 1959, your mother was the first person to visit us. I was very impressed with her friendliness.

Now, after 52 years of a very close friendship, I found her to be especially loyal, honest and a wonderful neighbor. She is the epitome of the word "lady". I will miss her greatly.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Dear Coach Allen, We are so very sorry for your loss. My wife and I both know that this time is a very difficult one, but rest assured that GOD knows and is always there, even when others are not. He states in his word that He will be what ever we need, a father, mother, brother, sister. Please take comfort in His words and know that where your mother has gone you too can go to be with her one day. King David stated this in his time of sorrow. If there is ever anything the McGinnis family can do to help feel free to call. Thanks for all you did for Carrie this year.
David, Clarabeth, and Carrie McGinnis
