Millard and I were so saddened to see that your beautiful Mother had passed away! Although we didn't know her, she sounded like an outstanding person and one who deeply loved her family. I know she will be missed by all of you. As I was reading her obituary, I saw where she was the same age as I and was at Troy State University the same time I was. I probably ran into her multiple times. Again, our condolences go out to all of you. She is at peace now. Condolences, Millard and Donna Powell

Dear Lamar and family, I just wanted you to know you all have been in my thoughts and prayers. I just saw Susan at Smokey Joe's for the 1966 Ladies luncheon. It is the first time our paths have crossed since high school. We spoke briefly and she was lovely, as always. Reading her obituary, she lived a life "well-lived.' Such a smart, sweet lady.
