  1. She was a lovely lady. Kind hearted, a loyal friend to my mother.
    Her and Don both treated my mother with great respect. Always had time to sit and chat about there days and just show compassion to one another.
    Not many ladies left like her. And not many men like Don. Sorry to hear of this sad news. I no she will be greatly missed. Especially by you. On behalf of Mary Prowell and my family I send best wishes and deepest sympathy. And say thank you for being “GOOD FOLKS!”

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept our condolences, she will not be forgotten.

    My Dear Aunt Margie….. what can I say? It’s been years that I have seen and visited with you and Uncle Don. I am so sorry about that. We all get so wrapped up in our own lives and seem to forget we have family members whom we should check on from time to time. And then we lose track of time and years have passed before we even realize it. I have always loved Aunt Margie. And I know she loved me too. May God’s arms wrap around all my cousins and give them comfort at this time. It’s in His name I pray. Amen.

    My Love To All,
    Janet Lumpkin Baker
