Dear Joe, Alice, and the rest of your family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of Mrs. Gore and her family from the First Baptist Church in LaGrange. I remember her family always sat up front on the right hand side of the sanctuary. My family sat toward the back on the right hand side. I believe she helped with Vacation Bible School when I attended in the summer. Joe, I think she was a room mother at Harwell Avenue with my mother at various times. She was a sweet and pretty lady. I know how hard it is to lose a mother. My prayers will continue for your family. God bless and comfort you, and may your needs be met. I'm sending my love.
