  1. Patty Walker, Trumann says

    Tammy and family you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I never got to meet this special lady but heard many stories about her. She was a dear friend to Doris Walker at Plantation homes and I am very grateful for that. Your grandmother was a true blessing to live to be 98 years old. Just think of what all she has lived through and seen in her 98 years. I know she will be deeply missed buy I have heard enough stories to know that she is with the Lord today.
