She will not only be missed by her family but her many friends as well. We went to church at Branch with her and her family for many years. She taught our oldest son Ray in Sunday School and he loved her dearly. He would always want to sit with her during the service and I can still hear her telling him he would have to be quite. I feel honored to say she was one of my dear friends and I will miss her but we know that one day we will see her again and she will be waiting with open arms and that beautiful smile. May God be with Wayne and the family at this time, you will be in my prayers as I am now disabled and will not be able to attend her service. God bless you.
