Billie Faye and Family: Just heard about the death of your mom today. I can remember going to her home as a child. We always had so much fun and she always had HOMEMADE ice cream sandwiches for the kids. I remember that being so cool. My thoughts and prayers are with you as you go through the days/weeks ahead. May you find comfort in knowing that she sits at the feet of Jesus until that day you see her again. Blessings to all.. Marsha Canup, October 26, 2011 To the family of Aunt Pauline: We just want you all to know that we thought allot of Aunt Pauline. Even though I married into this family, I have always been treated as if I was born into it. Aunt Pauline & I shared the same Birthday for 60 years, of course, I only knew her a little over 41 years. I will always think of her when our Birthday comes around, especially. Darrell & I used to go by & visit w/her on occassion, & she always loved company. I have gone w/Mom Price over to Farmersville to see her many times. Our hearts would break every time we left, b/c she would cry, as she was so happy to see her family & friends visit. She was crazy about her kids, G-Kids & G-G-Kids. God bless each & every one of you as you go through this difficult time of loss. May you find comfort through your faith, & knowing that she is no longer in pain. Our thoughts & prayers are w/you all! Love, Darrell & Karen Price, October 20, 2011
