Regrettably I received word of Ethel's death too late to be able to join you all for the service. My friendship with both Ethel and George has been a great blessing in my life and I will always be thankful.I appreciated and admired Ethel's tireless support of Uncle George and Scout Troop 222. How very appropriate to have former scouts serve as pallbearers.My prayers are with all of the family.May God give you His peace and strength.

Tony & Buddy, I remember the day your Mom first introduced herself to my mother & me at, of course, Ronnie's Restaurant. So kind & gracious, I immediately felt God's warm light shining through her. In spite of her cancer & pain, she never let it show, revealing her immense strength & faith. We all hoped that she would stay with us here longer, but don't worry, she is now celebrating her homecoming with our Lord & Savior. May God comfort you & give you peace! Jenny Braswell

Miss Ethel was by far one of the loveliset ladies I've ever known. Her clothes were always smartly tailored and she kept a smile. She was simply beautiful and full of kindness. I'm grateful for having loved her. May all of you be surrounded by peace and comfort, now and always.

Buddy, Kim and family. I'm so sorry to learn of your mother passing. She was a kind loving individual. I remember our camping days and how many sleepless nights we had playing cards. A lot of good memories of those days. Every time we would see at Ronnie's she would always ask about Melissa and Emily and want to see pictures of them. I know your pain and sorry because I lost my mother last December 8. Keep believing in God and he will help you through this venture in your life. Praying for your family.
