    What a beautiful lady Aletha was. I have so many good memories of her at the bank. My Mom (Cat Douthit) always loved Aletha and I was right there with her enjoying her beautiful personality. May your special memories keep her alive in your hearts. Love, Rexine

    Cindy,

    I say amen to everything Carolyn said, I think you know how I felt about your Mom and Dad. I know he would have been so proud of the way you and David have taken care of her. You are a special lady, just like your Mom, I may not be able to get to the funeral home in the morning. I have great grand babies to look after. know I am thinking of you and praying for perfect peace for you both as you deal with your loss. Your care for her has been amazing and you have nothing to regret. They are together again at peace. sure you will continue to miss her, but take comfort in knowing you did everything you possible could to make her life as pleasant as possible.

    Cindy,

    You have been, and will continue to be, in my thoughts and prayers. What a faithful daughter you have been!

    Aletha was always such a sweet, kind person and always took care of our family at the bank. She was always smiling and concerned about others. I’m so sorry she has had such a difficult time for the last few years and know how hard it has been for you to go through losing both your Mother and Daddy the way you have. Stay strong and know they are together and have no more pain. Take care of Cindy.

    Love,
    Carolyn
