Family says thanks for all of the kindness

In times of sorrow, it is comforting to know so many people care.

Mrs. Patricia "Tish" Mims and her siblings, Pastor Thomas Frisby, Paul Ramsey, Sharon Boyer and Michelle Whitney, as well as the grandchildren of Elaine (Flood) Ramsey, wish to thank the Hagerstown community for its love and support during their time of grief at the passing of their mother/grandmother.

It was a blessing to the family to receive all of the calls, visits and food, and the family wanted to especially thank Clara Broadus and Dot Bell for taking time to prepare and send food to Harrisburg, Pa., where services were held for Mrs. Ramsey, and said, "You put your heart and soul in all that you do which is truly a blessing!"

"Thank you, thank you, thank you - words cannot express how we feel, but we are hoping this message will (in part) let you know how much it meant to all of us. May God continue to bless and keep all of you (the Hagerstown community) in His care."


The Zion Baptist Church family also thanks the community.
