  2. Centerville GeorgiaDear Rod and Family,

    I was so sorry to see that your mom passed away! I was signing the guestbook for another friend and spotted the last name. You’re such a great guy that I am sure your mom was a saint! I ask God’s blessings on you all and pray that he will grant you comfort and peace to get through these times and the times to come.

    Love, Deb

    I am so sorry for your loss. June was a kind wonderful sweet person. I remember Dixie and I going over to your house often when we were little and June would give us Cookies. The fun times we all had making those big snow hills to slide down with our sleds those were fun times back then.
    My heart and prayers are with you all
    during this difficult time. ((((((HUGS)))))) to each of you Susie
