I don't recall a single time that I didn't see a smile on Miss Leora's face. She was always so jolly and so thoughtful calling and sending my mother cards once Mama was at Savannah Court. I can just imagine them reminiscing about their lunchroom days! My thoughts and prayers are with each of you at this time. May her love and wonderful memories live forever in your hearts!

Please accept our deepest condolences during this most difficult time. While nothing will completely take away your grief, we have found the scripture at Revelation 21:4 to be especially comforting where it promises that soon God will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more. May God comfort all of you and give you peace in the days ahead. 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
