To the family,
You have my deepest sympathy. God bless you all.
 I will keep you in my prayers.

Janet L. (Washington) Bell

 Miss you and love you.  I can't believe you are gone, I keep  saying to myself why now. I don't want to stay here in pain and I know you had to go, but it does not make it any easier for me. You did not get to see my daughter, but I know you will watch over us.

Keith D. Holland Jr.

 Mom we love you and we will miss you so very much. We know how much you loved us.  We have so many memories to keep us going until we are with you again. You taught us to be strong and to love one another and other people.  We will miss that smile and the touch of your hand as you always wanted to hold our hands. You were a good mother to us, smacked us when we need it, but hugged us more to show how much you cared. We know you are dancing all of heaven and of course given dad a piece of your mind. Well his resting days are gone, you are there now.  See you when I see you. 
 Love you so very much.
 Pandora Lee "Pam Evans" Middleton

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the family during this difficult time.  Miss Peg Ann was always dear to my heart because of the love she showed to my Aunt Julia ("Sister") who I miss so much.  Miss Peg Ann always treated me like I was one of the family and I loved her for that.
