Mrs. Hawkins was always a lovely, most gracious lady. My mother loved her and worked with her often in the Victoria Christian Church. Her daughter, Mary Kay, reminds me of her. We were all blessed to have her in our lives.

Mary K.and family: My prayers go out to you and all of your family. Your sweet mama will be so missed by many, my mom included. I am so glad we all have the memories of times spent on our family vacations with all us kids, our moms and of course our RR dads. We were blessed to be raise with such wonderful parents in a special time and town. My heart is heavy. God Bless you all. Linda

Laurie Anne and family, So sorry to hear about Margaret Evelyn. She was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. I have fond memories of her being my Sunday School teacher. I remember her giving us those cookies ----- the ones shaped like a flower with the hole in the middle, and also coconut macaroons. I remember it like it was yesterday. And her sweet smile. I know she is in heaven with my grandmother and all the others now. With heartfelt sympathy to you all.
