Many years ago we moved from town to Moonlight just down from this sweet lady. I enjoyed walking down to see Mrs.Harrell (at the time) and her children. I thought of Linda and later her child “LIv-LIv” as my real live dolls. I am so sorry for your loss.

Just want to thank you for settling the dispute on who’s fault it was that I dropped that brick on Mark’s toe on a dare. And for so many, many other things. I am the woman I am today because of you and my mama. Other people may not thank you for that but I do… 🙂 <3

So sorry that I have missed the memorial for Ms. Whittington. I had the pleasure of meeting her and Mark a few years ago with Linda. They welcomed me into their home just like they had known me for years. We shared many laughs over the brief time that I knew her. She was a hoot to be around. May all of her family find peace in the fact that she is now among the angels. Much love and fond memories,
Audrey Nicholson

I had the honor of meeting Mary Alice many many years ago. Over those years many fond memories were made. I remember the laughs we have shared, the stories she told, but most of all I remember how much she truly loved her children, grandchildren and family. Mary Alice will truly be missed by everyone who knew her. My most sincere condolences to Mark and family. Rest In Heaven Sweet Lady.
