I am so saddened to hear of Mrs. Clara passing away. She was always so sweet when I saw her at Wal-Mart. The family is in our thoughts and prayers.

It is such a shock to hear of Ms. Jacksons passing. It was always a great pleasure to see the family sitting on their porch smiling and waving when I honked my horn. My prayers go to the husband and little granddaughter.
