  1. Corky, I’m so sorry about your mother. I grew up with Wilbur and Nettie coming to my parents (Leroy & Dorothy Holloman) house and us going to theirs. They were good people. You and your family are in our prayers.

  2. Ms. Nettie was such a sweet woman. She gave me a hug every time I saw her. May God bless the family. It was an honor to know her.

  3. Dear Corky and Family,
    I went to Temple Baptist in Odessa with Nettie for many years. I also worked with her in the Shut-In Ministry. She was a “Special Lady” and I loved her. She was so proud of each one of you.
    May God comfort each of you in His Special Way now and in the days to come.
