    Nancy and Janice, I am so sorry for your loss. I loved your Mother and we had some real fun conversations about East High and First Baptist. She always told me when she went up the hill on ValleyBrook to visit Janice that she thought of me and did not stop. I fussed at her. Glad that she is in a better place and we will join her in the future.

    Our love and prayers are with the family at this time. I remember Mrs Anna from the days at Citizens Bank in Hendersonville. She was always such a sweet gracious lady and truly a pleasure as a customer.

    Janis, Nancy, Carolyn and Bob, we send our love and sympathy to each of you and your families at this sad time. We had the pleasure of living by your mother for almost eighteen years in Madison and what a great neighbor and best friend she was to us. We are very sad for all of you and hope each one remembers her loving smile and goodness. She was a very special lady and we will miss her as you do.
