Lee & I are so sorry to hear the passing of Ms Tinsley but oh what a reunion when she is reunited with Mr Earl!! I never knew until my Mom told us 6 kids how Mr Tinsley helped her out when I lost my Daddy in 1976!! It was an honor to know 2 Loving & Precious people!! We also went to Northside with them & loved them both very much:heart::heart:

Diane and family, I'm so sorry to hear about Beulah, she was such a sweet, kind lady. I remember her many years at Laurens Hospital. She was an excellent, caring nurse and person. My prayers are with you all. Mary (Brown) Dunmoyer
