Very special thank you’s to Granny’s sitter, Cindy Cobb a/k/a my right arm. Our family is your family now. You’ve been with us since the beginning of this horrible disease. My family could not have done any of this without you. You loved our granny like she was your granny, and for that we are very thankful. Nancy Erwin, you’re an angel on earth. Nancy called every single day to check on things, talk to granny and to read their daily devotional. Words cannot express our appreciation.  You are a Godly woman, and we could never thank you enough. Maureen Walker and Bye Edwards. Thank you for including her in lunches. She enjoyed getting out of the house (sometimes). Janis Goodrich, Gamble Hospice (always at our beck and call), and Billy Bickham, M.D., and staff Pam and Debbie.


Graveside services will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, October 15, 2015 at Centuries Memorial Park Cemetery in Shreveport, LA. Officiating will be Rev. M.C. Cady and Pastor Bill Foster of North Point United Methodist Church.


In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations to the Grace Home, Gamble Hospice or the charity of your choice be made.
