Jack & I share your sorry at the loss of Ann. We loved her as the gentle and compassionate
aunt and remember her and Bobby when they would come and visit it was such a joyful time to have the family all together. She fought the fight and now is reunited with the love of her life. I am sure there is a great reunion with her Lord and Savior. There is a rejoicing
reunion with the Browns and Smiths in her Home Coming. We look forward to visits with the Coney gang. Love to all the family and know that we send you our love. Ann has left each of us with the love and pleasure of knowing her. Love Jack & Mary Lou

Roberta and Khrista, I am so sorry to learn of the passing of your mother. You both have been such great daughters and cared for her over the years. My thoughts are with you both. It’s so hard to lose a parent but even more when it is your mom. Thinking of you!

Roberta and Khrista, you have our sincerest condolences over the loss of your mom. We are sorry that we did not get up to see you all. It was just about two years ago we saw you all at Pizza Hut. We know what it’s like with the loss of two parents. We’re thinking of you and remembering the Sunday School days at the Gospel Hall. You are in our prayers at this sad time for you. Kirk Brothers (Jim, Roger and Gary)
