I would like to express my deepest sympathy to the family. During this difficult time, God is near to those that are broken at heart, and those who are crushed in spirit He saves. Psalms 34:18

Dearest Bobby and Mary Alice and family, So sorry to hear about your Mother's passing. She was a special lady. When we had the "Fleming House" cafe, she made the first tablecloths for us. She was so precious, and always had a sweet smile. She encouraged me with her wisdom. We go way back, for Bobby and I were classmates when his beloved Daddy died. I remember going to their house in Homeland. Later, we were friends with Kenneth, and he was a fine man. I'd intended to visit with you, but yesterday, we were out of town. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. With love, Carolyn and Lloyd
