I was so sorry to hear of your mother's death. I have many fond memories at Cave Springs and the impact she had on my spiritual life. She was truly a great person and I know that you will miss her dearly. I have you and all your family in my prayers.

Dear Tim and Family,

I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She was such a special lady to me. I have very fond memories of her and your family as I was growing up in Horse Cave and going to church together at Cave Spring.

She was such a special blessing to me in 1986 for everything she did to help me plan my wedding. She made it a great day!

My prayers are with you and your family during this time of loss.

Love to all!
Carla Woods

I share in the grief for the loss of your mother Jean. She and I worked for Carl Powell in Horse Cave many years ago.
She was a very sweet lady, and will be missed by all who knew her. I saw her last, about 10 years ago. Leo was also my friend. He passed during the time I lived in Indiana. May God help you in your time of sorrow.

I am sorry to hear about Mrs. Davis. When I was a young girl, she would occasionally give me rides to church. She was one of the kindest ladies I had the pleasure of knowing and will be deeply missed by all who knew her.
