Mrs. Midgette was a dear and kind person in the short time I’ve known of her at work and would be sadly missed.

My condolences to each of you.

I was very fond of Aunt Blanche,the last time I saw her she was here in the hospital. She talked to me about my heart being right with God,because my family has a tendency to go fast.

Love to all,Merita
