Dear Glenda and family, I was so sad to hear of your mom's death. She was such a lovely lady, always cheerful and smiling! I so enjoyed seeing her each week at the Hair Station when I'd bring my mom to have her hair done. My mom was your mom's first grade teacher! I pray God's sustaining comfort for all the family in the coming days.

Windell you have been a remarkable son and I know your heart is aching. Mother was so proud of you and you showed such compassion for her. Your servant heart and selfless devotion to her is surely a tribute to the person Mother was and to the fine son she raised. May God, who is so faithful to his promises, bring you peace and comfort. Thank you for everything you did for our precious Mother.

Mary and I became friends over the years when I "picked & sang" for the folks at Adult Day Care. I always dedicated a special song to her as I closed my program. She was a very classy and wonderful lady. I played there today and sorely missed seeding her in the audience. My condolences to her family. She was a special lady!
