Grandma you were truly one in a million. Your faith in the lord led you every step of the way from the very beginning until the end. I don't think I have ever met anyone who was kinder than you. You hold such a special place in my heart and always will. There is no replacement for a Grandma. I will miss our little talks and your wit. I will miss your spiritual guidance and the love I always felt even though there were miles between us. I know God is holding you in the palm of his hand today I got lucky this one is truly special. Love you with all my heart..till we meet again ❤️RIP

My sincerest sympathies to this wonderful family! I don't have to tell you how special Ethel was, because everyone knows! There was a time in my life she treated me like one of her own. They both did! Such a precious heart! She lives on in each and everyone of you! May God comfort you through this new journey without her!
