  1. Rusty,
    I know that this is a tough time to go through for you and your family. I hope there are lots of good memories for you all. God bless you.

  2. Jewell was sweet lady. She stayed next door to my in-laws. I took care of her when she got sick at Heritage Convalscent Center. She would always say honey I don’t mean to be mad at you but I just hurt. I would always go to her room and sit with her and talk. She always gave me incouraging words about time I would leave her room. God bless Gayland and his wife. Tracey and Tonya Matthews;Linda and Willie Devorce
