I certainly was saddened to hear that Mrs. Nora had passed away. She was really a permanent fixture of Peak when we were all growing up. My father J.W. spent many hours in the store talking to her after Mr. Ray died. May God bless you all in the coming months. She will forever be remembered when the "stories" of Peak are told years from now.

Betsy, Chris & Family,

We were sorry to hear of the passing of your mom (Ms. Nora)You & your faminy are in our thoughts & prayers.

Kathy told me about our first Christmas living in Peak back in the late 80's. She was making something that called for Nutmeg, so she went to your mom & dad's store to buy some. After looking in the spice section, all the nutmeg was gone, but Ms. Nora walked over to her house and brought back some she had in her kitchen, so my wife could finish making her dish for company!!!

She will be missed.
Karl & Kathy Sease

Our family offers you our deepest sympathy on the passing of Miss Nora. She was such a wonderful woman full of fun and grace. I used to enjoy seeing them at the hot suppers at the community center. I remember your mom and Mr. Ray enjoying the dances. She is at Peace and enjoying Ray's company once again. I regret not paying my respects in person due to work committments of present. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. Lee, Carol, Joseph and Amelia
