I am Inez's only surviving grandson. Since Inez's passing my grieving is on-going. Inez was not only my grandmother but my best friend and biggest cheerleader. It will only be in death till this heartache passes and we are reunited once again. Inez was a servent in this life and I fall so short of even beginning to approach her lived out faithfulness each day. I miss you my dear grandmother!

Inez was a precious lady and I will miss her quiet presence in the pew in front of me each week. I am positive the Lord welcomed her with the words "Welcome home, Inez, my good and faithful servant."
