I am very sad to hear of Mrs. LaRoy's passing. She was one of my customers and she was a very loyal one. I appreciated her business and her friendship so I never hesitated to come to help her when she needed something. I also appreciate the times she would wrap up hot, buttered dinner rolls, fresh out of the oven, for me when I had finished my job. May God bless your family and her eternal soul, at this difficult time.

I met Muriel in the pool at the Y. She was a sweet, lovely lady that I truly liked. One day she was so excited that all of her kids had come to church with her for mother's day. It was a blessing to have met her.
