My thoughts and prayers go out to Ms. Mae and Mr. Lanier and family. I grew up living next door to Mr. Moss and Mrs. Nora Bell. These two fine people would do anything in the world for you. I worked at the nursing home for a while when Mr. Moss was there. He will greatly missed by his family and the staff that took care of him everyday. I pray that God will be with you during your time of loss and grieve. Sincerely, Paige Arwood-Hubbard
