I am so sorry for your loss. My father, James B Stewart, a member also of Oak Grove Church was buried on 10/17/2013. I will certainly keep all the family lifted up in prayer. It is so sad to lose a parent. Carolyn Martin

I’m so very sorry to hear of Aunt Margaret’s passing. She was a kind and gentle lady that always took time to speak whenever we saw each one another. I know that Grandma Fannie and mama (Joyce Morris Conner) always had a fondness for both her and Uncle Colie. Her peaceful manner will certainly be missed by all.
