Bobbye, I am thinking of you today. I know Mrs. Roberts is relieved of her suffering and is in a sweet place. She hung in there with the best of them and remained so full of life for such a long time. Treasure the memories and thank God for the life of such a wonderful lady. May God Bless your family at this time. Norma

Dear Seaborn and Bobbie, You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of Aunt Warnell. Even though I have lost contact with a lot of the extended Baker family, you are still my family. I have wonderful memories of the family reunions and visiting with Aunt Warnell in the fabric shop. Since Lex's death, God has blessed me with another husband equally as wonderful, and a precious son. Beverly, Jeffrey, and James all live in Florida near where their Mother, Jan lives. Jan and I still have a good relationship and share three beautiful grandchildren, though we seldom get to see each other simply because of distance and the fact that our lives have taken other directions. We were all together last at Janet's funeral. I will make sure they know of Aunt Warnell's passing. Please give my love to my other Aunts and Uncle Jerrell. I will be praying for you as you go through this trying time. May your wonderful memories bring you comfort.

I am very sorry to hear of Mrs. Roberts' passing and regret that I was unable to attend the visitation or funeral. She, like my parents, is in a much better place where we will all be reunited one day. May God bless you and your families!
