  2. Dear Paula, My prayers and sympathies are with you at this time of your mother's home-going. Please know it's okay to cry and laugh and sigh. Jesus did all those things too. Your BSF friend, Louise

  3. Lee was a beautiful, warm hearted soul. The first time we met, it was as if we knew each other always. She and Uncle Chester made a wonderful, loveable pair. She will be missed greatly.

  4. Aunt Lee was a very Happy & Special person to our family. When we met her years ago when she was married to Uncle Chester we knew she belonged in our family. It was like we were old friends catching up on life. When we came to visit them after Hurricane Katrina came through she met us with open arms. She loved to go to the casino with us. Took us around town to show us the sites. I will remember both of them in my heart for ever. Love, Patty
