    We are so sorry about the loss of your wonderful Mother. I remember how wonderful and kind she was to me and how she helped on so many committees at school. May God bless her soul and bring comfort to her wonderful family.

    Sorry for the loss of your mother. There is nothing like a mother’s love on this earth. I remember that she made my cheerleading skirt in high school and did such a perfect job. You and Jimmy were blessed to have such a wonderful, sweet mother. May her memories always bring joy to your heart and a smile to your face.

    Mrs. Cowell was my second Mom, in high school and college, when I was dating her son, Jim. She was always happy, welcoming and loving. Her children and husband adored her. I am sorry for her loss, but grateful for the Christian life she lived, always a blessing to all who knew her. Godspeed Edna, thy good and faithful servant. My sympathies are with her family.

    I am very sorry for your loss. Ms. Edna was a very dear friend of my mothers, Crystal Nelms. I loved her and Mr. Buddy so much as a child. They both had such wonderful smiles. I have many fond memories with my parents and the Cowells. I just thought Cindy was so cool and loved having her attention at Crystal Springs. Ms. Edna was my Sunday school teacher, and I still have a Christmas tree ornament she gave me dated 1974. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. In sympathy, Chris

    Cindy, Kenny, Jimmy,
    I was so very sad to hear of your Mom’s passing. She was such an amazing wonderful lady that could bring a smile to all that met her. Please remember that now your memories of her are true treasures, as she was.
