Zola was a very special Great Aunt. She loved ice cream,and really liked strawberries and my coconut cream pie. I have always felt so blessed to have had her in my life. She has been called home at last. Our thoughts are with all the family.

Bill Dennis and family,

In hearing of the passing of your mother, just want to convey my condolences. This brings back memories of riding on the school bus together.
