    As Momma Debbie said, we can all find some comfort that Sister has been reunited with Grandmother, Brother & Chris.

    I am honored that I was previledged to know Mrs. Denny. She always welcomed us children into her home. She was loving and fun to be around and I thought of those times frequently through the passing years. My sincere sympathy goes to you, her family. I will keep each of you close to my heart during this difficult time. Love, Cindy

    David & family,
    It’s been a long time since we were neighbors on Jefferson Ave and so my memories of your Mom & Dad are fading but are good ones. You were great neighbors and we had some good times together. Condolences to your family from the Freeman family. You’re in our prayers.

    Helen, you were a joy to work with
    at the courthouse back in the 50’s,as was John Henry. I never dreaded going to work because you two made it such a delightful time to be around you.
    Will see you again when the Lord is ready to take me.
    Love much,
