  1. I will miss Mrs Era Belle so much. I’ve shared many laughs and good times with her over the 18 years I’ve been at First Baptist Church. One memory I cherish is how she loved to hug my son. This made her chuckle because he is 6’6″ and she didn’t come to his arm pit. Prayers for all of you.

  2. Melissa, I’m so sorry for your loss. She was definitely a very sweet and loving woman. I will never forget the carrot cakes she baked for Sandy and my birthdays. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  3. Bubba, I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your Momma. God has gathered another rose for His heavenly garden. Prayers for you and your family.

  4. To your family from ours, we send our condolences, and love, and prayers to you all. I really adored her. I only met her a couple of times and it seemed like I knew her forever. What a Angel she is, and now forever will be at peace. Love you all. Sonya Mertz and family…

  5. Loved this Precious Sweet Lady, She & her Sister’s were always so Special to me growing up in New Hope!I cherish the times she & I would be @ Piggly Wiggly @ the same time & talk about Family:) Especially after Charles & Nancy had Passed. Wonderful Memories and to her Children & Sweet Niece Joyce Anne. I ask God to be with you all & Bless each one of you in your loss. Love you all.
