  • I would like to express my deepest sympathy to Zella’s wonderful family. I want to thank you with all my heart for sharing her with me for a short time. I loved her dearly. She was loving and funny and made many wonderful days for me and others around her. She had the gentle ways of a wonder lady and the spirit of a lion. She will be in my heart forever. God bless you all. Love Nurse Glenda

  • My prayers go out to you and your family in your loss of mother and grandmother. I didn’t know her well but have known others in the family for years. It’s hard to let go of our loved ones but when we know they are going to be in Heaven where they’ll have no more hurts and worries it’s a little easier. Find your comfort in Jesus in the coming days. Blessings to each of you…..
