I only had the pleasure of meeting Leda a couple of times but she made you feel like she'd know you forever. I will miss her smile. My love, thoughts & prayers are with the family in their time of grieving.

Teri,Marsha and Lesia,
What can I say... I am sorry for your lose, is there anything I can do, if so just let me know. These are the first words that comes to our mind during a time of sorrow. As we know only time and our faith can only heal the pain. You girls have been in my thoughts and prayers. I planned to try and make it to visitation tonight, however it was not possible,I had surgery last week. As you know our family called your grandmother Bertie. So many good memories of her during my childhood. I remember going to she and Arvill's house many many times, I recall going to church with them and I could go on and on. She was a wonderful woman who will be missed. She made the best out of life, always had a smile on her face when I would see her out shopping. You girls are also a big part of my childhood memories. You may have been too young to remember, I would ride my bike or walk to your house almost everyday when you lived in Bay.

No question Bertie is in a much better place than we are. Take comfort knowing she is in heaven, with our God and the many loved ones who past before her. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no on can steal.

Love to you all,

Patsy Banks

So sorry to read of Sister Southards' passing. She will be greatly missed. I know she and her Sister, Sister Grimms are dancing around the throne of Jesus.
