My condolences to the family during this sad time. It was great growing up in Crawfordville with the Durham family living on one side and the Edwards family on the other. I fondly remember the good and mischievous times that we shared.

Dear Family, I am very sorry to learn of your loss. Miss Ruth was a sweet lady who was so faithful to the Crawfordville Baptist Church. I remember when she, Mr. WG, Ronald and Patricia lived on Sharon Road in the old Sturdivant home across the street from our house. You all have my deepest sympathy.
