  Sorry to hear about Ila.  It should be noted that she was a member of our Ancestrails Genealogy Study Group which was instrumental in getting The Richwood Gazette microfilmed. She was also responsible for publishing some historical books by herself as well as with working with others in the group to publish useful historical records.
  I enjoyed working with her.  I hope she found that last great...grandfather she was looking for when I visited her at Carriage Court some time ago.

You were my buddy, we did a lot of things in life, South Carolina trips, you introduced me to Scrabble. You were so wise and taught me so much about life and people. Your love meant the world to me and Jack. Having our wedding reception at your home will always be a great memory that I will never forget. You were truly the mother that I did not have on this earth. Rest in peace dear sweet lady. You were loved greatly.
