Mamaw, I don’t quite have the words to say what you meant to me. You were the absolute rock of our family and I just don’t know how we’ll ever be quite the same. I know you’re at peace and finally no longer hurting, and I know you’re having such a sweet reunion with my momma. I miss you both more than I will ever be able to put into words. I’m looking forward to the day I’ll see you both again ❤️
Larry, Janice, Norman ,& rest of family so sorry to hear of your loss. May God bless and keep you in His care during this time of sorrow.
So sorry to hear about Alla Jean, prayers for Norman and all the family.
Uncle Norman, Steve and Family,I am so sorry for your loss and share in your sorrow. Aunt Jean was such a special lady and will be so missed. She was extremely talented--piano, painting, sewing and the best chocolate and coconut cream pie maker in the world! I loved sitting with her and Uncle Norman on the front porch of their house for an afternoon visit. I loved her dearly and will treasure the wonderful memories I have of her. Love and prayers for you all.Laura & Marley

I am so very sorry to hear this about Mrs. Martin. I got to know her and Mr. Martin through Vicki and she painted several different items for me that I still have in my home to this day. So talented as an artist and playing the piano. I still miss Vicki oh so much. My love and prayers to each of you. Jill

Ms. Jean will be missed. I enjoyed hearing her play the organ. She is home and well. Prayers for the family mourning her loss.
My favorite story I heard while growing up was the story of how Mom and her cousin Jean met their future husbands. Mom and Jean went to the skating rink in Melbourne and saw dad and his cousin Norman across the room, mom pointed to dad and said I’m going to marry him. Jean pointed to Norman and said well I’m going to marry him! My prayers and thoughts are with you.
Sorry for your loss and praying for your family
