"Grandmom", as she wanted us to call her was the most dignified, scrupulous woman I have ever known. Her convictions were so strong, especially about right from wrong, parenting, and taking care of your family. Her life was centered around her husband, her boys, and her grandchildren, each of them putting a sparkle in her eyes when she spoke of them. She has finally joined "Granddad" in heaven, but her legacy will live forever in each of her boys and grandchildren. God rest her soul. She was a great woman never to be forgotten.

Extending deepest sympathy to family and friends in this time of sorrow. Please find comfort in knowing that soon all those in the memorial tombs will hear Jesus' voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Until that blessed day, may the GOD of all comfort grant you peace while many fond memories warm your hearts.

Dear Richie and family, it is so sad to learn of Caroline's passing. We had so many good memories of both your parents, especially living around the corner from each other. When Dudley, Ed, Caroline and I spent time together in New Orleans (the men worked and Caroline and I went sightseeing, and sampled the delicious beignets.) That was an enjoyable and unforgettable trip. Sincere condolences from the Dudley family. Your mom is at peace now, with your Dad With sympathy, Georgette
