    I was so sorry to here of Mrs. Lea’s passing. I know you will miss her. I will remember her fondly from out times at West Fayetteville (with my late mother Katherine Talley). We had some joyous times together at church as well as our times with Bro. Tom and Sister Joy there. I will always remember the fun times at Tom and Joy’s home. Please accept my sympathy. I know the angels in heaven are singing as they welcome her home.

    My heart was saddened to read of the loss of Mrs. Perry. She was one of the sweetest, kindest ladies that I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting here in Lincoln Co. She was so kind to my daughter when she decided she loved photography and Mrs. Perry was more than happy to let her take pictures at her beautiful home. I sure will miss driving by her home everyday as she was always in the yard working in her flowers or on her front porch. May God bless Mr. Perry and his family.
