My son Lee was Ethel's neighbor,Lee moved in almost 16 yrs ago right across the street from Ethel & Oakley and they were his first and only neighbors to come and welcome him to the neighborhood. Lee as well as myself visited Ethel often. How we loved to hear talk bout the good ole days. Lee would shovel her driveway for her in the winter (no charge just been neighborly). She called Lee her only neighbor (lol) We would go to be a blessing and always left the blessed one. Her smile and love will forever be remember in our hearts . Lee loved her like a 3 grandma. RIP Ethel you sure left your mark in the world.We loved you <3 God bless the family.
