  7. Joyce and Eddie, we are so sorry about the passing of Aunt Doris. She was our favorite Aunt! There was so much life and fun and laughter when we were able to share family events with her. She’s at peace now and with her sidekick – Aunt Dene! I hate that we can’t be there in person to hug you and provide support but you are in our hearts and prayers and we will be watching online. Love, Anne & Phil Creek

  8. Ms. Sharp was a precious person who I become more acquainted with in the last ten+ years and grew to love. She was so supportive of our Ladies Day at South Green Street church of Christ. She love to help with flowers even when she was not able to come.
