    Linda and Reba, may prayers comfort you at this time. I have good childhood memories of your Mom. I always enjoyed the sleep overs. Your Mom was fun to be around. Our moms couldn’t drive, but now they have their wings and flying around heaven. Prayers to the Family

    Aunt goldie was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever met. Dan and I were always welcomed in her house at anytime and she always had to fix us a meal. She will truly be missed. Look forward to seeing her in heaven. Praying for all the family. Love, Linda
