Georgia and family - my sincere condolences to the passing of your wonderful and gracious mother, grandmother, and friend. I loved viewing the photographs...such an elegant lady and someone who will live with such great memories forever.

A rose once grew where all could see,
sheltered beside a garden wall,
And as the days passed swiftly by,
it spread its branches, straight and tall...

One day, a beam of light shone through
a crevice that had opened wide
The rose bent gently toward its warmth
then passed beyond to the other side

Now, you who deeply feel its loss,
be comforted - the rose blooms there-
its beauty even greater now, nurtured by
God's own loving care.

James, Sue and Georgia - my sincere condolences to each of you and your family. It was a pleasure meeting Ms. Blake, James and Sue. I am happy the piano book that belonged to Georgia and Sue many many years ago has returned home. I wish I could have met all of you under better circumstances. God bless all of you - Laura Bennett

My sincerest condolences to James Darrell, Patricia Sue, and Georgia Ann - my cousins. Grace was married to my dad's brother James. I have lost touch with the family, but a friend who lives in Lake Charles let me know of Grace's death. I would love to hear from the three children.
