Beth and Mark,
Our deepest sympathy to you and your families in the home going of your beautiful mother. She was very kind, supportive, and loving to all who knew her. She was one of my dearest friends. I have missed that close friendship and spending time with her since we moved from Statesville. I will remember her with all good thoughts in my heart and know that she is at rest in her heavenly home.
Much love and sympathy,
Fay Brincefield (Mrs. Jim)
