Sorry for your loss. May the God who "binds up the brokenhearted" and "comforts all who mourn" strengthen your family during this difficult time (Isaiah 61:1,2)
I remember Mrs. Hattie from when I was a child. I would go by her house almost every day to buy a sno cone. She was such a nice lady. Condolences to the family.

Hattie lived next door to my daughter and me for many years on North 7th Street in Abilene. She was a wonderful lady and a joy to us. We hated to see her move to another street, but kept up with her in the new place also, and tried to keep up with her when she finally moved in with her daughter. We look forward to seeing her again when we meet her in the Lord's presence.
