Memories Timeline


  1. We were so blessed to have Mrs. Eula Mae in our church in Grand Lake. She was a sweet, loving, and smart lady. About a week or two before she died, I went to her home to bring her a CD of the Sunday service, and we got to visit for a few minutes. I'm so sorry for your loss, and I pray for God to comfort your family.
