To the Barnhill family, We shall miss the spirited Ivey! I have known Ivey and extended family ,Daisy and her family, who I know was so loved by all of you! I came to work at the Thonotosassa Postoffice in 1979, I got to see Ivey on a regular bases, because she was PoBox 144 , and Daisy still has that Po Box. I was blessed to see Ivey a year or so ago, when Daisy came in and said she was out in the car. I ran out, opened the door and gave her a hug and told her I loved her. She remembered me! I am so blessed to have that touching moment with her, she was always one of my favorite customers.To all the family, my heart is with all of you. Pauline Sanders ( Daisy, I have Po Box 1) Please keep in touch dear!

I remember Skeeter fondly as such a faithful member of our church. She taught me in Sunday school and was great teacher. Most of all I remember her laugh..I still hear it. I know that she is now reaping the reward of her faithfulness with her Jesus in heaven.

The first time I met Skeeter she was changing the oil in her firebird and you could see were two little legs sticking out from under the car! What a spitfire! She was a unique person and will certainly be missed.
