  1. Hi Girls,So sorry for the grief you must be feeling but in God's mercy Hollie is no longer suffering and as Jesus was resurrected, by her faith she will be also.May God bless all of you.Her first cousin, Jim Williams[Hazel's son

  2. I had an opportunity to visit with Hollie when I visited Lake Charles last October. She was volunteering at Women's and Children's Hospital. Tari had surgery at that time. It was so typical of her to be doing something for someone else. She told me about her illness at that time. She was an outstanding scout leader and her input in starting the Girl Scout Camporee was instrumental in it getting orgaized. I am fortunate to having the privilege of knowing her. She was so proud of all of her girls, but most of all her three daughters. You have my sympathy and prayers for your comfort. Janice Smith
