A light from our family is gone, a voice we loved is stilled, a place is vacant in the family which never can be filled. We have to mourn the loss of one , we would've loved to keep but God who surely loved her best has finally made her sleep. After a lifetime of her love and joy. God leaves these wondrous memories to help us through our tears. Ivory Lee, you will always be in my heart. Catherine Love-Russell (Carl)
