Heaven just got a little sweeter. While I am sorry for the loss of those she’s left behind I’m jealous of the joy she is experiencing now with her savior and all her loved ones who have gone before her. She has been a blessing to this community and for those who knew her . Inspiration lives on. Praying for God’s peace and comfort over the family. God bless you all.

Richard and I are sending our thoughts and prayers. Miss Hendrix was a sweet lady. We went to Pine Ridge Baptist Church and that is where we got to know her. A special Lady.
