Leave Condolences

Janie, Lewis & Chris I am so very sorry for you loss. Your mom was one special lady. I was thinking about all of us and how things have changed, but it also brought back so many memories when we were all young. I always wondered if our mom's really liked all the coon hunts they had to endure. I know we always had fun. Mom and Dad sends their love and will be praying for you all. Love you

Janie, Lewis, Chris (and families), I am very sorry to hear of the passing of Frieda and I was not able to make it to Cadiz tonight or tomorrow for visitation as I would have liked. I appreciated her very much and the friend she was to my Mom, myself and family. I recall many childhood trips to Bible School and homemaker club meetings with Ms. Frieda, as my Mom did not drive. There are no words that can ease the loss of a mother, but knowing that the support of friends and family are out there, certainly helps. God bless you as you go thru the funeral tomorrow and the days to come.

We are so sorry for your families loss. Prayers and Christian Love Betty and Robert Latham

Janie, so sorry to read of your mother's passing. I remember her so well. My mother thought a lot of her.

I am very sorry to hear of Cousin Freida's recent death. May she rest in peace. Sincerely, Cousin Susan Thomas Bridges Evans, Georgia
