Memories Timeline


  1. I was honored to have had Zelma for a mother in law although it was for 3 short years. She made such an impact on my life by her kind, encouraging, considerate and Godly lifestyle. She was definitely a prayer warrior. I loved watching her cook for family occasions. Watched her make the best homemade dumplings!!!! I always looked forward to our shopping trips to Belk. My heart is saddened by her passing but I like so many others have beautiful fond memories to hold dear to my heart. My heartfelt love and sympathy goes out to the entire family!!!!
