Your Loving Daughter, July 8, 2008 Wishing the family well Paula Irene Welling, June 22, 2008 May God comfort as only He can. I am in Tunisia while all this happened. God bless you all Bill & Ann Cantrell, June 21, 2008 I'm sorry for your loss.... I met Tiny through my late husband and mother-in-law, Danny and Myrtle Carraway of Whitewright. They seemed to think a lot of her. My last visit with her was when she was still living with her dau. north of Savoy. I'm sure she had a lot to be depressed about, but seemed "up-beat", in spite of everything. I know she'll be missed. God bless. Janell Turner Carraway Janell Turner Carraway, June 13, 2008 Grandma, we will miss you dearly. We know you are with all that preceed before you and you are at peace in the arms of Our Lord. Our love went with you but lingers here as long as we are here. Will miss our talks and meals together. Remembering the "spoons" with fondness. We love you and will miss you dearly. Till we met again. Bill and Donna Owens, June 12, 2008 One day we will see each other again. We know you are in a place of no more suffering. You will be missed. Love Tony and Becky tony dewayne owens, June 12, 2008 Just wanted to drop a line to say that I am thinking of you during your time of sorrow. ( Friends with Tony and Becky ) Aleta Kay Whipple, June 11, 2008 Little did we know that day, God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, You did not go alone. For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. You left us beautiful memories, Your love is still our guide. And though we cannot see you, You are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and everything has changed. But as God calls us one by one, The family links again will chain Ina Arlene Owens, June 11, 2008 There are so many memories of the last two years I spent with Birdie. I really enjoyed her stories of all of her travels and experiences. She was so special to me. I loved her, and looked forward to seeing her every Mon., Wed., and Friday. I will never forget her and will be with her again someday. I took a picture of her the last time I got to see her at home. I'm so thankful I did. Ina, it was a blessing, and pleasure to have you two in my life. I will never forget either of you. Love, Mary Mary Ann Fuller, June 10, 2008
