Condolences

Zella and I have been good friends for many years, we spent a lot of time doing family things together. We lived a short distance apart. We sat in church services on Sundays. We were never as close as when she was in Hale Creak Manor, I would go to see her on Friday afternoons. Zella would always say to me ( can't you stay a little longer, or next time you come earlier so we can visit longer). I will miss Zella and will always remember what a wonderful Christan lady she was.
