    I love you so much mom and will always miss you! You were the best mom anyone could ever have. Thank you for always taking care of me. You always made sure my needs were met before your own and you always showed me right from wrong. The most important thing was you taught me about Jesus Christ. Enjoy your time up in heaven with Grandma, Uncle Ray, Uncle Earl, Aunt Harriet, and Uncle Pee Wee. God now has you in His warm and loving care. I love you mom!

    Prayers for the family of Betty Merryman, especially sons Jay and Joey. I remember Mrs. Merryman very well from high school. She also lhelped my parents with the concession stands during football season, as well as , when both her sons played football during junior pro season. May God continue to heal the family for He now has His child with him now. Tell both my parents, David and Barbara Hall hello in heaven for me and may you rest with God and spread your wings Mrs. Merryman.

    Aunt Betty was not just an aunt she was my best friend. I will always cherish the times we spent together. We laughed and laughed. I am sure she is with the rest of our family drinking coffee from That Beautiful River. Enjoy your new life with no pain and suffering. God and grandma along with the rest of the family have you. I can just see you and Shelton running down a dirt road where the deer roam and talking Nascar. Thanks for all the phone calls, pay check stubs, sun glasses, beads, and umbrellas. I miss you bunches but am happy for you. We got your boys just ask you asked.
