    My deepest sympathy and prayers to all the family! She was one of the sweetest ladies I have ever known - always so kind and gracious at church. She had such a loving, gentle spirit about her. I know you will miss her greatly, but she was blessed with a long life and now her pain and suffering are over and her body and mind are healed. What a blessed promise to know you and we will see her again one day. Alton Connor
