We were so saddened to hear of Mrs. Alice passing away. She was so special to us during our time in Marion. She was our "adopted grandmother" and she use to say. I learned so much from her and will always cherish the memories. One of my favorite pictures on my refrigerator is of Mrs. Alice and Mason when he was 8 months old and he is now 14. We will miss her dearly and will remember you all in our prayers. Much love, Sean and Suellen Weaver

Fred, Charles, and families, We want to express our condolence to all of you at the passing of Mrs. Conner. We have a lot of fond memories of her and your dad from the times we visited in their home. They were always hospitable and made us feel at home from the beginning. Mrs. Conner was a great cook, and she was definitely a credit to her apron. During these difficult days, may God comfort all of you as only He can. Sincerely, Jim & Rose
