Sincere condolences to the family of Miss Ila. She will be remembered fondly by our family as her friendship with momma was so sweet and special. She was always so kind, encouraging and filled with the Holy Spirit! And she could bake a 'mean' cake or two as well:) Our thoughts and prayers are with you and we hope your wonderful memories will help you through the difficult days.
