    Mary Jane and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear about Isa. She was a dear sweet lady. I went to church with her at First Church of God. I enjoyed talking with her and Phyllis. There were a lot of good memories. I will be lifting you and your family up at this time but we do know where she is. Rely on the Lord for you strength at this time. In Christian Love, Ann Cooper
