  1. So sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love, Cindy Drawhorn

  2. Lewis & Chrissy,
    My prayers are with you. Minnie was a very special person. She smiled all the time and found the joy in life. I have so many memories of her; particularly in my childhood when she would color with me and sing hymns on the church van. Now she will be a bright light in heaven. I am sure your Dad, Uncle Jim, Grandma and Grandpap, and my Dad were at the pearly gates to greet her. Find peace knowing she is in a glorious place where you will one day see her again.
