Condolence Messages

  1. I met Granny ( Wilma) in a chat room back in 2001,Several of us would meet there twice a week to discuss genealogy. She was always willing to help anyone who came in Chat with their research.
    Prayers to her family.She was a Special Lady & I will never forget her.

  2. Granny was on Russell Co., Chat room back when I started looking for my husband’s family. She loved talking about her children and husband. When someone came in looking for the Ball family she would go to work making the connections. Tunnell’s and Ball’s they were her area. Hoping all her research stays together. She helped anyone. We had some good talks. And yes, she did talk about her Evelyn. She really loved that girl. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family.
