So sorry for your family's loss. Mrs. Ella was a sweet lady and neighbor. So many memories going back to carpooling to school. Will always remember her kindness. I'll remember your family in prayer during this difficult time.

I’m so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was an amazing lady and I have fond memories of her teaching me how to cook when we worked together at Delta Seafood. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you and I know she will live on in your heats and minds forever.
