To Willie and all the Girls,

Your mom was so very special and long a fixture of my childhood. Whether it was to look and see her traipsing across the yard to Granny's or to go over and have her cut off a piece of her rhubarb for me, she was ever the loving, gentle, woman that we all will cherish as our Vonda.

I wish you all the solace of prayer and love with your family and loved ones.

God speed Vonda...

With all my warmest condolences,

Andrew M. Criswell

Willie and family: I know only too well what you are going thru at this time. Vonda is with God now and her pain is gone. You will miss her every day you are here on earth but realize that one day you will join her in Heaven. Willie, you are a friend and "one of our family". If you ever need anything, today or in the future, I am only one phone call away.

Ken & Mo Ousley
