We extend our sincere sympathy to all of the families especially our neighborhood friends for so many years. Tommie J,Gayla and Anita J, we extend to you our love. Shawn, my sister talked about you often and spoke of how courteous you were at Cracker Barrel. I still remember the time you gave my grandson a very nice compliment and you could sense it was from your heart. We share your grief and please know we are praying for the families. May God give you strength,peace and comfort during this time and the days to come. Eleanor Mitchell's children(Jackie,Jesse,Faye and Van)
