To the Caudle family, it was a pleasure to have met your parents through my grandmother (Mrs. Lottie K. Bellamy). It was always a pleasure to be in your dad’s company, he was a friendly man, a great man. Whenever I ride by their home I always has the thought of as a child how we would dropped “Grandma” by there for one reason or the other. He will be greatly missed. Death has a way of changing your life forever. Thanks for the memories. May my grandmother and your husband/dad rest in peace. Just another angel watching over.
I just heard about Uncle Theron’s passing and I am so sorry for your loss. My sympathies to all the family.
Don and Becky,
We’re so sorry to learn of the death of your father. It’s so hard to lose a parent especially if it’s unexpected. You’re in our thoughts and prayers.
Dear Dorothy, I read about Charles in the paper tonight and am so terribly sorry. As it is too late to visit at your home, I will try to get to see you in the near future. With heartfelt sympathy. Mildred Howell
