I'm dearly sorry to hear of Aunt Jewells passing. I pray for comfort and healing to all of the family and friends. I choose to remember Aunt Jewell picking in the garden and canning, enjoying new years with cornbread and black eyed peas, or playing rummy, chineese checkers, and or dominos, laughing whether winning or losing. I hope everyone is willing to share the good memories they have of her through the years, look forward to enjoy them remembering her. - George Rudder Jr.
