Mark, Tony and Family, We shared so many memories through the years, one of my favorites was the home made ice cream. I remember the peach was my favorite. You were just little then. We visited and even lived next door to each other. Time changed many things but never our friendship even though we went separate ways. Come by sometime if you just want someone to talk to. Loved your Mom and Dad and love you all. Shirley Martin and Family

Tony, Mark, and Family, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. Ciss was a special lady with the voice of angel. I have many great memories of all the times we spent together at those dances and there were many. She had a smile that would light up the room. She is now with Marvin and I am sure there is a lot of rejoicing going on in Heaven. RIP my dear friend. Elsie Williams
