Carolyn and other family members, I was so sorry to read of the loss of your mother. Even though it has been 30 years since Jim and I left Greensboro and Walker UMC, I still have fond memories of your mother and dad. They were very special people and good friends to our family. God bless each of you and give you comfort during this loss. Marlene Ransom
