  • Thinking of you Vicki & Penny. I thought a lot of your mother. Haven’t seen her in years. I am your former neighbor at the Johnsville house. The house on the south side next door where the 4 boys lived. (The 5th son was conceived there but born while at the Mt. Gilead house.) My pray is that the Holy Spirit will comfort you and give you peace.

    • I want to extend my sincere sympathy to the Family of Eileen. I always loved visiting with her in my Beauty Shop. She shared so much about her Family and the Love she had for them. I will miss her sweet voice and caring heart. She was a Beautiful Christian Lady that left “Wonderful Memories” to the Lives she touched.

  • Vicki, sorry to hear of your mom’s passing. I pray God will comfort you with wonderful memories.
    I was your neighbor in Johnsville during our elementary school years and remember the times we played, since we were the only girls in the neighborhood.
    I have been substitute teaching, and had the Timmons children in several classes. Wondered if they are your grandchildren.
