    I stumbled across the news today and am so sorry that I missed the service. I often think of you, your mom and dad, and your amazing grandmother. What a warm and wonderful family you were born into! It was a gift to get to know you all.

    My mother will be 86 this summer and was at the Etowah Senior Care Center for a while at year end. I don’t know which is worse, the shock of losing them unexpectedly, or the anguish of watching them fade away.

    Please let me know if there is anything I can help you with. I would love to see you again!

    My Aunt Betty was the sweetest woman in the world. When I was little, I used to wipe off lipstick from all her kisses. I wish I could go back. She loved my curly hair. RIP

    Sherry you may not remember me but I remember you and your beautiful mother when I would shop at copenhavers. She was always so nice and had the most beautiful smile. I always looked forward to talking to her. I just lost my mother and father in the last two months , so I know the loss you feel. I am so sorry and have you and your family in my prayers.
