    Carrie has been a part of the Honea for almost 72 years and will be greatly missed. She was a great cook and liked to entertain before she became disabled. She loved her flowers and she and Lawrence loved to work in their garden and raise all those good vegetables and especially their famous black beans. She was also a quilter and could embroider and other types of hand work even coloring and playing cards and bingo.

    My mother and I could not have had better neighbors than Mr and Mrs Honea. They were so good to Mom especially after our stepdad passed. If a thunderstorm was predicted, Mom would go by Mr and Mrs Honea until the storm was over. Their beautiful yard and flowers, garden. Shall forever cherish their wonderful friendship. An amazing couple. I can see Mr Honea opening the car door and watching Mrs Honea leave early for work. Thoughts and prayers to the family.

    I was picking beans in the garden the other day and thought about those black beans that Carrie and Lawrence used to grow and keep the seed – i wondered how she was doing – praying for God’s comfort for you all
