Losing you is difficult. You were my world. You know I told you that you were the best Mother I could ever ask for. You were a sweet, kind, loving person who would give anyone a hot meal or a place to stay. And you never had a mean bone in your soul. I will definitely miss you and our talks; and just being with you. But I know you're at peace and happy now that you're finally back in Daddy's arms again. All my love Mommy and Daddy.
Your daughter,
Laura Davenport Smith

This lady was the best ever. I love my Aunt Ethel more than you could imagine. I have so many fond memories with her and Uncle Bobby. You are back with your loving husband and son I know y’all are having such a grand time.
