Linda, Gary and family. I was so sorry to hear about your mom. She was a great Christian lady always had a smile
for everyone. I enjoyed so much going to church with her at Eskridge Baptist when I was growing up. She was such
a joy to be around. My thoughts and prayers are with you. She will truly be missed. It will not every be the same at
Eskridge Baptist without her presence there.

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs. Delorese's death. It was such a joy to grow up with her as my neighbor. I will never
forget her beautiful garden, but mostly the sunflowers that she would grow and share with us. Loved those toasted
sunflower seeds.
