  • Davie, Brenda and family,
    I love your Mother Grandmother so very much. She was my Godmother and has told me so many funny stories of when she my mom and their siblings were young. When we would get together for our “Harding Girls Luncheon” she always would bring either her famous Apple pie brownies or chocolate chip cookies. She always enjoyed those gatherings. We will miss her always. She was one of a kind. Love and Prayers during this time of sorrow. Love Laurie
