Dear Dottie, Jayne and Glenda; So very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Uretha was a very special Southern gal who never forgot her roots! She did love to shop and I met her in several stores over the years. She will now be reunited in Heaven with her wonderful husband, Doug and son, Phil, along with other family members and friends. God Bless Uretha and may God bring you comfort for your sorrow. Love, Priscilla (Ward) Madan

Glenda, Dottie, Jayne and family. We are very sorry to learn of your Mom's passing. There are so many good, happy memories with her. The card games, piling out of the car at Walmart and someone in the car next to us commenting that we looked like a clown car with everyone getting out, laughing so hard that we ended up with wet pants. Uretha was a wonderful person, and will be greatly missed. We love you all. Lillian and Robert
