Lilly, Janie, Jessie and Henry, and family,
Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers. We are so sorry to hear of Aunt Zora's passing. She was always so kind to us. We always enjoyed you all visiting us. We have such great memories and now Aunt Zora and our mama are together again. They loved each other and their family so much. Find comfort in knowing she is in no pain today and that we can see them again some day.
Patsy and Connie
