    • Thank you for the lovely conversations we had! Thank you for the tomatoes you so graciously shared. The trips to Glasgow will never be the same.

  2. Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your beloved mother, a strong, yet gentle, caring person who touched the lives of many and was much appreciated by all. May the wonderful memories of Ms. Morrison continue to provide your family with comfort and God’s promises give you hope. Isaiah 26:19; Psalm 37:29

  3. To Julie and family, I am so sorry for your loss, Darlin’. I know you loved her very much. Please let me know if you need anything!

  4. Jennie, Beverly, and family,
    I just loved Eugenia. She and my mother, Emily Neville were such good friends and enjoyed so much in
    common. She would even visit us in Nashville occasionally, and I really loved having her in my home. She, Jeannette Harvey, and Mother had such great times together and it was fun hearing their stories.
    Eugenia was a special lady. I know you will keep her in your most special memories. May God comfort
    you all.

  5. I fondly remember many vacations visiting my Mon’s sisters on their farms and playing with all of my cousins. Aunt Jenny was a great cook and I appreciated her hospitality. I will miss you. Rest in peace. My love to those cousins.

  6. My wife and I extend heartfelt condolences to Julie Ann and other children in the death of their mother. Cousin Jennie was a gracious and generous lady who always was ready to talk genealogy, farming and the bureau, and, of course, politics. Our visits and telephone chats were a real joy and I will miss them very much. I do feel blessed that we were able to make a family connection even though it was relatively late in life. Her treasured gift of a small pillow reminding us we were from the same family tree still sits in our living room. Our heavenly Father has promised us that this is not the end. I am sure all who cared for Miss Jennie will look forward to that reunion. Meantime, we can only share in the sadness and grief caused by her loss.

  7. I am truly sorry I can’t be there for Aunt Jenny’s funeral! She was such a special person! Her beauty was both inside and out! My prayers are with all of you!

  9. Beverly,Junior,Jenny, and Julie,
    Our deepest sympathy to each of you in the passing of your Mother. I remember that she was an excellent cook and the many times we visited the farm and had wonderful meals prepared by Jenny. You all may not remember me, but my Mother was Louise Alexander…Jenny’s Aunt. My name is Frances….better know as Lee Lee. I remember playing with you all growing up. Your Mom had a cousins reunion that myself and my sister Brenda came to several years ago. She had prepared some delicious food and we all had a wonderful time reminiscing. So sorry we could not attend the funeral for her. Sending each of you and your families our heartfelt sympathy at this difficult time. Much love
    Frances Alexander Guffey and Brenda Alexander Walker
