  2. Such a lovely lady. Remember all the good time you had with her & that she is now at peace with her husband.

  3. Belinda,
    We were all so sorry to hear about your mom. She had been such a great friend & neighbor to our mom. Mom always looked forward to your mother walking over for a visit. They would just sit for hours talking, not to mention your mom doing our mom’s hair….. Your mom was always a very classy Lady too. You’ve & Ronnie have had a long, long road & a lot heartache. You will miss your mom, but knowing she is out of any pain & in a better place, hopefully that will give you peace. Our prayers are with you, Ronnie & family……… Pat & David Andrews

  4. Belinda and Ronnie ~ So sorry about Eunice, she was such a beautiful, caring lady. A great example of a Mother. She was always smiling and loved working in the yard. I remember her in the choir at First United Methodist Church and always smiling. When Samantha and Jozette were young, they would wave to her and she’d smile back at them. Belinda, you were sitting next to her. She sure loved her family and church family. We all loved and respected her. Mom really did enjoy their visits, they had a lot of laughs. I sure miss those days. God Bless y’all and your families. She’ll be missed but she did leave great memories.
