Lamar, Cady Nell, Tatom and family, Don and I wanted to express to you how sorry we were to hear of your mother's passing. She was such a vital part of our church for so many years. Lamar, my favorite memory of her was, she always wanted you to sing "Hello Mama" to her every mother's day in church. How proud she was of you and the beautiful voice that you have. We will be praying for all of you as you face the days ahead. We Love You

I wish to express our sincere sympathy to Nell's family on behalf of the Greenville High class of 1942. Nell came to reunions and luncheons as long as she was able to do so. We loved having her with us. Sometimes Jacquelyn came, too. We have missed her in recent years but were happy to be in touch with Lamar at the time of our 65th this year.

From the many times we saw her in your home and on the square, your mom was a joy. To the family we send our heartfelt love.

We extend our deepest sympathies to your family. Ed always spoke of his grandmother when doing with us, and because of this I know she was very loved and will be greatly missed.
