  1. So sorry for your loss. I heard my husband mention Maxey Combs name several times. Always in a good way. Lots of wonderful memories of SKF employees
    RIP Mrs Combs.

  2. Doug, so sorry for you and the family loss. I have been there and it’s not easy to give them up. May God be with you and Melissa and the rest of the family during this difficult time.

  3. Smitty and I are so sad to hear of Elizabeth Ann’s passing. I met her at a family gathering of Smitty’s family at Christmas time. Smitty told me I was going to see his grandmother. You can imagine my surprise when we went in and so so many people I had never met. I remember like it was yesterday. Elizabeth Ann came to me and took me under her wing. Well, that was what she called it. She sure was so sweet and friendly and I had not met her either. She had a beautiful smile and was beautiful inside and out. We laughed about that night many times over the years. I loved her. Love and prayers for all who loved her.
