Gary, Clark and Sandra - My heart goes out to you at this time, along with my prayers. Such fond memories of our childhood and the impact your mother had for me when we would be in T-Ville to stay with my grandparents. Such a loving, kind woman.

Heartfelt condolences to Gary, Clark, and Sandra. I have fond memories of your mom as we grew up together in the neighborhood. She was such a kind woman to all in the community and in the church. Remember the good times and she will always be with you.
