Mrs. Rhodes was a sweet and beautiful person. She has very warm personality and smiled a lot . We are so glad to meet her and her daughter at Senior Center even though it was a very short time. We will miss her but knowing that she is now in a beautiful place with Jesus. My condolences to the families

Saddened by the fact I only knew this fine lady for the last year of her life. In that year however she left memories and impressions that will last my lifetime. The one memory I care to share (the others I'll keep close to my heart) is of a kind and giving woman who would get upset at you if you didn't let her buy your lunch or buy you something special. God Speed MaMay, you are without a doubt experiencing God's greatest reward.
