Please accept our sincere deepest sympathy on the passing of "Aunt Hattie"...We will miss her so much. I can still see her sitting in church giving the little ones small pieces of candy as they sat with her. And I well remember her famous popcorn balls which we Mill Town kids tried to be the first in line for on Halloween! She was indeed a very sweet and special lady... sincerly, Carlene and family

Hattie was a beautiful person who we loved dearly and I send my heartfelt sympathy to each of you and especially to my friend Jenny! Only God can help ease your longing to see her again, but remember she's in such a beautiful perfect place now and what better Guardian Angel could you have watching over you and your other family members? God Bless each of you! Love Julie
