    I am so sorry, I saw her through everything my family had went through! First my brother Jim! This was the most tradjict experience any mother could go through! She was there! Then she was there when my mother of 59 passed! Then she was there with my grandmother! Most of all she was there when my dad passed 😢! Her and Charlie along with Peach Tree church means so much to my heart! I grew up with Revern Arzie Ezell (Joann father)! This family was and is still with our family! I just hope they know my love for them! Things happen so good things can come! Thank you Peach Tree Church! Just believe! Love you!
