I was saddened to hear of of the passing of Cortez. I am related through the Williams family and am Cortez's second cousin once removed. My grandmother talked often of Cortez's Mother Annie Hicks and mentioned the little store Annie had. Please accept my sympathies for the passing of Cortez.

Growing up I spent some time with Mrs. Laurence's family. The visit usually included the family stopping by and visiting with Mrs. Laurence. I always enjoyed visiting with her and she always made me feel welcomed. I took some time this afternoon to read about her life. What a great example of someone who loved and invested her family, country and local community. I am grateful my life crossed paths with her and her family. It is my prayer that God would comfort you all with his nearness. Psalm 34:18. Sincerely, Trey

I remember going out to the Laurence farm on a field trip in the first grade. Mrs. Laurence was one of the first grade room mothers and as nice as everyone was, she made the greatest impression on this first grader. She was a compassionate and caring lady who taught her small daughter those same qualities at a very early age. Margeann, I know you have wonderful memories of your mom. May you and your family keep them close.
