Mrs. Jeffares and Bobby were one of the first people we met when we started attending Chapel Hill Rd. Baptist Church. They were both very welcoming to my family. We will miss her pretty smile. We know this is not goodbye but see you later. Many prayers for the family.

Aunt Gladys made my uncle Robert the happiest man in the world, they are together with Bobby now. She was always sweet and I never heard her say an unkind word about anyone. To all her children and grand children and the rest my prayers and thoughts are with you.
