    Dear Danny, David Lee, Bill,
    I’m so very sorry to hear about your Mother.
    She was such a kind and giving person as I remember her plus a very good friend to my Mother; Eloise Bell.
    We all had some great memories growing up in Port Acres, First Baptist Church, SFA ????’s, and I am thankful for our Godly Mother’s and the Discipleship they showed us as Children.
    God is with you now and always,
    Rebecca (Bell) Blackwell

    Dan, I’m so sorry to hear about your Momma. I loved your Momma and Daddy so very much. She always told me that I was the daughter she always wanted and I told her she was my second Momma. I know that her and your Daddy will be waiting at the Pearly Gates with my family to welcome me to Heaven. My prayers are covering your precious family. Love, Kathy Bradley
