Mrs. Hamby was a sweet neighbor and friend for the past 15 years. She always enjoyed my visits and loved to talk about church and gospel music. I will miss seeing her, talking with her, and having her as a neighbor; but, she is in a far better place now. We will see her again soon..................

Iona will be dearly missed.
