Jill, What a lovely picture of your mother. She was a beautiful lady both inside and out and I'm so happy our paths crossed. She was a wonderful neighbor and both my parents dearly loved her. I hope you and your family are well. Good friends never forget each other. Love, Lula Belle and Jim Wood

I have known Doris for many years. My husband and I did things with her and her friend. We shared some good times together. I use to meet her at K&W Crossroads for lunch and visited her once in her home. She probably was 92 at that time and I was in the mid 80's. Now 89. We kept in touch with Christmas cards and occasionaly telephone calls. She was a sweet friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family. In Christian Love, Violet Tyree
