Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry Brother Phil and Sister Dale. Not able to be with you like you were for me recently, but I am praying for you and your family during this hard time. Especially for Sister Floy. Much love to you. <3

  2. Remember visiting with Mr. Stokes when I would go see Sis. Floy. He was always kind and would talk about current events and his take on them. Sis. Floy would say Mr. Stokes was married to the business – he stayed there all the time. ha That proved how hard he worked and wanted to provide for his family. His example as a provider and hard worker has been passed down to his sons and beyond. HOld those precious memories close. They will carry you through difficult days. Love Sandie
