i have missed Mr and Mrs Stanton living in Murfreesboro as I remember them when I moved here years ago and married their neighbor’s son Johnny Cobb, Faye Cobb’s son. I know Mr.Staton has been missed by you all and I am sure Ms. Stanton will be equally missed. She had such a quiet nature about her and a genuinely sweet lady. Another angel has been added to the garden of heaven.
Love to the family as they go through this time of sorrow. No one knows how it is until they have walked in the shoes. We will miss her.
Love you “Just Grandma”
May the Lord comfort and Keep you all as you go through this time of sorrow and greif. There is no Sorrow on earth that Heaven can not Heal. May God help you all through this time. With our deepest Sympathy.
E. J. and Rhonda Byrd
We have great memories of “dancing” with Dorothy Mae at last years reunion. She had such a sweet nature. She will be missed.
