Your dad and mom used to visit my parents, Bill and Lillie Mae Justice, at Goose Pond quite often. They were both wonderful Christian people and my parents loved their visits. I went to school and graduated with Julia Byrd Hare, who was one of my dearest friends, even after graduation. I was her maid of honor at her wedding. She too was a wonderful Christian woman. Your family has a long history of doing good to others and you all have great examples of God’s love and faithfulness. May God comfort you and give you peace that only He can. Al and Judy Justice Haser

All of my life I have fondly remembered you, Allie Mae, for the your loving, caring kindness when my little cousin, Robert Hurdle, was killed in his 13th year of life. I’m sure you lived the rest of your life in just that same mode of loving care. How blest were the people around you!

Now, rest in the arms of Jesus, until we meet again in the morning of our real lives.
