I’m sorry to read your mother has passed away, Ann Blair. I remember her from growing up in First Baptist Church. She was a very nice lady and your father was a kind, gentle man. May it comfort you that they are together again.
Your mom was a very special lady. Her smile and laughter would light up a room. It was a pleasure knowing her. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
I was so saddened to hear that your sweet Mother passed away. I will be keeping you in my prayers.
So very sorry for your loss. Your mother trained me when I went to work with Carolina Telephone in 1966 where we worked together until her retirement. I had not seen her since she moved from Ahoskie, but thought of her often, I have fond memories of time spent with her (loved to hear her laugh) May she RIP
