I met Mrs. Payton at the hospital. She was the sweetest person. I will miss her. Our last visit she asked if I knew the Lord and that she wanted to spread his word. I do believe in the Lord and I know that he has a special place for Mrs. Payton.

I met Shirley and her husband at karaoke. She was such a nice person and loved to get out with her husband to sing amongst other things when time permitted. Altho I didn't know her very well, I know she was a Godly woman and now she is at peace with Him, no longer the suffering , the struggle. Rest now in peace Shirley, prayers to your family and friends,
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I remember the times as a child visiting and having to eat brussel sprouts and to this day I hate them still. Use to put them under the steps outside. Sorry for your loss Paula.
