We are praying for you during this time. We pray God will comfort you and your family. I remember the days at Fairview Baptist Church where y'all attended when we were growing up. My mom and dad are up in heaven, probably greeting your mother.

So very sorry for your loss, this wonderful lady could do anything she put her mind to. A very talented artist, and loved her family. She was the mother of my best friend Jimmy, and always had a kind word and a little smile for everyone. She will be missed by all that knew her.

Praying for your family during this difficult time. Our families have been close for many years. Bernice & my mom were best friends in school, double dated together, & had many good music get togethers. Due to some health circumstances we will not be able to come to visitation but know that you are close to our hearts and in our prayers. Love you!
