Debbie- BJ and family, so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I remember meeting her at Mr. Billy's and Ms. Edna's when your daddy was working in the woods with daddy in the late 60"s. She and your father were so happy together then and I know they are both happy again today in heaven. Thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Marcia and I loved talking about our children, our love of pets, Alabama football, and how to solve the world’s problems. I met her when she began at Michelin and we became friends almost instantly. She was a beautiful, caring person ..inside and outside. My heart and prayers are with you, her family. I know a lady as special as Marcia will be greatly missed. ❤️🙏🏻
