Barbara, Peggy and Family, Maner and I have known Ms. Elizabeth all of our lives. She was a lovely, kind, Christian friend. I always enjoyed being in her home and going to Church when you and Peggy sang the beautiful songs and she played the piano. Mr. Pierce and Ms. Elizabeth were a wonderful couple and the barbershop was a fine gathering place. Mr. Pierce cut Maner's and the boys' hair for years. We are thankful for the many fine memories. You and the family are in our thoughts and prayers.
