    Dear Cousins,

    Years ago we would take Eddie and Ethel down to visit with Gracie and Forrest from time to time. Gracie was always so very kind to all of us, but especially to my grandparents. They thought the world of her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all now and in the coming days.

    Love to you all,
    Bob and Cindy Dunivan

    We send our love, prayers and sympathy. Gracie was special in so many ways. To us, she was a very important part of the TTFA. She is missed more than words can express.

    My own memories of her were her smile and her willingness to help her fellow man. I don’t believe I ever saw her without a smile on her face and I never asked her to take on a job within the TTFA that she said no.

    She can now be at peace and with her beloved Forrest.

    With Love, Della and all of Gracie’s Tow(e)ry cousins.

    Mrs. Donna and family,

    We want you to know that it was an honor to have known Mrs. Drennon. Mike enjoyed his visits with her when he mowed her yard. One Christmas she made us the most delicious Hummingbird Cake. She was such a jewel. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. In Christian Love, Mike and Jane Osgood
