Thank you to the Meadowview Place and all of their staff for their love and kindness in taking care of our mother for the past eight years. She felt at home there, and thought the staff treated her just like family. Also, thank you to Heart to Heart Hospice for their wonderful care and love shown our mother for the past several years.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to charity of your choice.

What a special life we had because of the many family get togethers we had in Nacogdoches. Too many memories to list but I feel blessed to have grown up in such a loving family. For many years I made a chocolate pie and angel food cake every week for my family because Aunt Frances always cooked something special for her family every week. Loved her very much. Love to all, Sue Ann Tucker Murff
