Armilda Hoskins

From the family of Armilda Hoskins, we would like to thank everyone for their kindness and generosity at her funeral and while she was at Jackson Manor (Annville, KY).

A Special thanks goes out to the nursing home, Dr. Hays and our family there.

Granny’s last few months were special.

Also, thank you to Britton’s Funeral Home for making the service good.

Thank you Barry Hubbard for making the funeral feel not like a funeral at all but a celebration of Granny going home.

Thank you Brother Bobby for the message.

Thank you Ance Wagers for the beautiful songs.

If we left anyone out who gave us cards, letters, food, etc… it was not intentional.  We thank you with all our hearts.

We still need your prayers.  GOD BLESS YOU.
