  2. To the family of Magnolia…what a great friend, faithful and loyal employee, hard worker and loving Mother Was the Magnolia I knew over the many years we worked together at Doctors Hospital. She has run the good race and now her eternal award awaits her in heaven Praise God for her life and for all those she touched along the way, we are the blessed ones. May her memory be eternal and we look forward to meeting her when we all get to heaven. You all are in our prayers Love, Buford and Eileen Nash

  3. In Deepest Sympathy It seems there's very little Anyone can say or do To ease the loss of one who meant So very much to you… But may you find some comfort In the sorrow that you bear, Just knowing there are many hearts That understand and care. The ceremony was beautiful. The Nash, Smith, Wilson, Mc Kinsey, Marks, Redricks and Mc Quarters families.
