  1. My condolences to Aunt Janie and Uncle Ed, grandma was such a beautiful and loving woman. I will miss her terribly. I wish I could have been there but it just wasn't able to happen.

  2. My condolences and prayers to the family of Oraola. I was pastor to Amos and Oraola at Oakley U.M.C. I deeply appreciated their Christian love and friendship. She was a dedicated lady to Oakley church and her service for her Lord, Jesus. I have many fond memories of our times together and her friendship. She now rests in God's arms of love and is forever with Amos in paradise.
    Pastor Don Long Sr. & Mary Ann
