I was so sorry to hear about the lost of your uncle. He was a member of my church at First United Methodist. Your uncle was the sweetest person at church and always had a smile on his face. Although your aunt has been gone for a long time I have wonderful memories of her too. I grew up in First United as a small child and they were always so active. When I was in my 40's I ran a summer day camp in the summers. I will keep you in my prayers. Joyce Shelton Hazelrigg
