  1. Cindy & Judy and the family, I am so very sorry about Carol passing. My heart aches for all of you. She was such a wonderful lady, always concerned about her family and friends. I was blessed to call her my friend. She will be missed for sure. She was always a welcome ray of sunshine at Winona Manor. Y’all will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.


  2. Judy and Cindy,
    I am so sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of your mother from when lived down the street in the early 70’s. Years later, our paths crossed again as nurses. She was so kind. I loved being around her. May God bless you in the days ahead. 🙏❤️


  3. I am so sorry about the loss of your loved one.. I just talked to her a week before! I told her I loved her and now I am so glad we had that conversation . Praying for God to grant you the comfort and strength you need to get through and to give you peace in your hearts.. God bless .


  4. Thank you all for your kind words for our mother, and we appreciate your prayers. Love y’all, and please keep them coming. Tari, I have so many memories on Gamble Street. So many memories of riding bikes and running up and down the street. Momma had just found out your mom was across the hall from her. She wanted to visit, but didn’t get a chance to do so. She loved those neighborhood kids and their families. We were so sorry to hear of Tandra’s passing. Y’all have been in our prayers.
