  3. I have not seen LaMerle In a very long time but My memories of her are of a quiet sweet lady, faithful to her savior and a sweet wife to her husband Robert. They both were good people. I feel that Angela has sweet memories of growing up in their household and I pray that God gives her and her family the peace and comfort that only God can give her.

  4. I am saddened to hear of Ms Pound’s passing. She resided at the senior living facility with my mother and I always enjoyed talking with her. A kind lady with a sweet face and smile. I will miss her when we can visit our loved ones again. Prayers for her family during this difficult time .
