What wonderful memories I have with Mr. and Mrs. Echols and growing up in the Temple youth program with Glenda and Sharon as well as seeing the little sister, Susan, at church events and fellowships at the Echols’s home. I am certain Mrs. Echols is telling the story in Heaven about a certain young high school kid that ran a motorcycle through her kitchen door back in the early 1970s. Hopefully getting a laugh now but never for a moment making that young high school kid feel bad but only continuing to ask if he was ok. Lots of memories today as we say goodbye to a beautiful and special soul who now is dancing with angels and warming Heaven with her sweet and caring smile. I have and will always love the Echols and the memories we share of days gone by. My heart and prayers are with you all during this sad time for your family. In Christian love … God bless us everyone.
