    I loved this lady. I was Jenns friend and she welcomed me into her home and treated me as her own. She was always in that kitchen cooking something and telling us to eat. I will always remember Jenn and I eating peanut butter straight out of the jar and her fussing with us. I love you Nanny. You will be missed.

    My heart grieves with all of you. I have fond memories of my friendship with Rose. She was one of my first friends after I moved to Lunenburg County. God bless and comfort you in your great loss.

    Aunt Rose had the most beautiful heart. I loved pulling into her driveway and having her greet me at the door with a hug. No one could rival her in the kitchen and she poured love into every dish she made a guest. I am sad for you all, my dear cousins, but happy that Rose is healed and in heaven where we will see her again. Sending you love and prayers in the difficult days ahead. Pam

    Jennifer and family, my heart goes out to you. Nan was a wonderful woman and I always enjoyed seeing her. Rest in the comfort of knowing that she is whole and with our Lord and Savior.

    She was a wonderful Aunt. Always so kind, generous, and thoughtful. It was a real treat when we we're able to get down there for a visit to see her. I will never forget her famous homemade sweet pickles. Our deepest condolences to the family and the sisters. Love Steve & Robyn Caudle
