Walter and I are so sorry we did not get to Claire’ service . Neither of us drive and I am in Hospice care for second occurrence of ovarian cancer. Aunt Claire was a favorite of mine and kept up with her often until this past
year. Our love and condolences to Kaycee and family. Also her next door neighbor, Rita, who was so good to her. So grateful to Sammy Hunter for calling us . Ann Hunter

Kayce I am so sorry to hear of Mabel’s passing. My parents, Edd and Betty Williams were good friends with Mabel and Ray. Your Mama, Tina was a special lady and I remember when you were born. I lost touch with your family but I have fond memories of our families good times together. Take comfort in knowing she’s reunited with Ray and Tina. My thoughts and prayers are with you now and in the days ahead. Cherish the many memories you have of your precious grandmother. Love, Polly W Turner & Family

Kaycee, Tony, Luke & Kyle

I want to tell you all how much I loved Mabel Clair Darby.
I visited with her weekly and enjoyed hearing her tell stories about her family and growing up in Stoney Hill community. She loved her family and talked about them a lot. Kaycee Morris, her granddaughter, took such good care of her.She will be remembered fondly by many.
