Your mother was such a gracious and gentle lady with a quick smile. Please accept my condolences. Beverly Barrett Green, February 8, 2004 I did not know about this till Vickie Lewis told me yesterday (Friday) I am so sorry I missed it. Imo was my first boss. . I worked for her when she ran the little store across from the high school . . such a hoot. I loved her then and love her now, even in her passing. She was an inspiration to me and I know what kind of Christian lady she was. Praise the Lord for examples of Proverbs 31. I hope she and my dad are having a grand time now in heaven. Be blessed with all the wonderful memories of her, as I am with my dad. Love to you all. . Barbara Barbara E. Barrett/Boland, February 7, 2004 Patsy, Lynda and Dewayne, we've been friends for over 50 years and throughout those years, we've laughed together and certainly shared a lot of joys! Imo was always such a constant in my life. I thank her and all of you for those warm and wonderful memories that I have when we all were growing up at Bethel. What a reunion must be going on now in heaven. I love you all! Ann Yates Burton, February 6, 2004 Preach and Imo together again in the presence of the Lord they served!
