Memories Timeline


  1. Donna and Kristi: Sandy and I were so sorry to hear the news about your mother and grandmother. Please know that you, Nicole, and the rest of your family are in our thoughts and prayers during this time. In Christian love, Linda Fontenot and Sandy Singer

  2. My mother would give people the shirt off of her back and never ask for anything in return. She never wanted too much for herself. She loved God and wanted us to know him and know that we were loved. And she always taught me I could do anything I put my mind to and encouraged and built me up and always told me how proud she was of me and how much she loved me.

  3. Please accept my sincerest sympathies to all of you at this time. Aunt Tootsie was so sweet and dear to us all. You are in my prayers and thoughts.Love to you all,Dottie

  4. So sorry about your mom passing away…I realized that your Mom's dad, W.C. (Elsie, Marjorie, Mildred Whitman) was a first cousin to my mom, Rosemary Olivier Owens…all of you are in my thoughts and prayers…

  5. You are all in our thoughts and prayers. I remember wonderful times when all the cousins would play in the Magnolia tree at Grandma's house and the parents would be inside talking. I pray that God's peace is with all you!
