    Miss Mable----Heaven is shining brightly today with your smile. You always saw the good in everything. When a special prayer was needed, everyone knew who to call. Your spirit, dedication, and love for God and the church was an example and inspiration to all who knew you. We miss you, but find comfort in knowing you are home. God Bless. Love, Tim and Kathy

    There are so many wonderful memories of "Miss Mable". She was truly the influence that led me to the Lord. Her life on Earth is over but her influence will be felt through generations to come through the children she loved and taught. She is reaping her reward as we mourn our loss.a
