From The Family of Lola Bush

We the family of Lola Bush would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and prayers during the loss of our beloved wife and mother.  Thanks for your prayers, the beautiful flowers, gifts, cards, and to those that brought food, to the singers that sand the beautiful songs, to Jerry and Jerry McKinley Holland for their comforting words, to Corum Flowers for the beautiful flowers, to the Tri County Hospice Nurses and doctors.  And to the ones that helped us in any way your thoughtfulness in our time of grief is deeply appreciated.  In addition we would like to thank Parker Corum and the staff of Britton’s Funeral Home for their care.  Although we have lost a very dear loved one whom will be sadly missed, it is comforting to know that heaven has gained a woman whom loved and trusted in the Lord.  We all love and miss her dearly.  - The family of Lola Bush.
