  1. Your Mom was a precious, Christian lady. I loved being in her Sunday School Class. She was a blessing to many down through the years and her legacy will live on through her family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time.

    I have many fond memories of Oneida. I was in your home often when I was a child. So many memories of playing with Nelda and Virginia. Wotham Bend was a very good place to grow up even though we were all poor back then, we were rich in friends.
    O D and Oneida are togeter again and that is great. She is telling him all about each of you now.
    May God hold you close in the palm of his hand as you travel this road without her.

    Nelda, Gingie and Norma, I am so sorry to learn that Oneida has crossed the River Jordan. I know you are in great pain and grief; may you find comfort in the knowledge that Oneida is now walking the streets of gold with OD; Oneida has found peace and healing in the arms of Jesus.

    It has been many years since I left China Spring but neither Oneida nor OD left my memory or my heart. It is so hard to think of one without the other. The last time I saw them, I was home on leave from Germany. As I drove through China Spring, they were sitting on their porch. I turned around and stopped for a lovely visit. Oneida and OD are listed in my baby book as giving a gift, that is almost sixty years ago. I see them sitting side by side at church. I rode OD’s bus when I was "little." Oneida was always serving lunch with a smile. She was a dear woman who will be remembered by more people than you will ever know. She touched so many lives in a positive way.

    My thoughts and prayers with each of you and your families. No matter that we’ve all left or scattered, a piece of our hearts will always be with our Wortham Bend friends and family. Wrapping you each in a hug, Lynn
