Condolences from family and friends

She will be missed by all of us at Smoky Mountain Rehab. I have great memories of her and Grandpa. I know Lucille and Grandpa are finally together again and they are happy. I loved both of them as if they were my grandparents. May God bless all of you!!!

What sad news. You have my sympathy as you mourn this loss.

I dialed the latest phone number to see how your parents were doing. Number disconnected. We are so sorry for the loss of both your parents in one year, They remained upbeat even though they had mobility or sight issues. We hope they did not suffer. So great they got to live a long life. Our grandmother (Leonora Yaden Smithers) lived to her early 90's with MG. We hope this reaches you as we send our sympathy to your family.
