Larry and Mr. Massey, So sorry to hear about your mom and wife. Although I did not know her personally, she and my mom were in the same Sunday School Class at Emmanuel. Mom used to speak of her often. Wishing you peace and comfort during this time. If there is anything we can do, please let us know.

Mrs. Pritchett -- can't call her anything else, is one of the most gentle, precious women I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. She never met a stranger and ALWAYS had a smile on her face. She will always be missed. She raised all of her children the same way. Virgie
