Barbara, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family on the loss of your Mother. I only knew her while she lived at The Hidenwood, but after you introduced us she always smiled and waved whenever she saw me. Don’t know how to contact you but would like to talk to you. When things settle down maybe you could give me a call at 898-4660. Continuing to remember you.

I have known of Miss Oza all of my life, but didn’t know her well. All the times I did encounter her, she always was pleasant and had a nice smile. Keeping Barbara, Angie, Janice and families in my thoughts and prayers.

Oza and my mother Eileen Allen were co-workers and good friends for a number of years. They would sometimes get together at the flower shop or with the Pioneers and even at Hampton Baptist.

Oza was a wonderful person and I am glad that I knew her.

We were blessed to know Oza. As we lived not far from each other, she rode with us to many HBC services and events. We have many fond memories of good conversations and time spent together. All her family is in our prayers.
