One Entry for Elizabeth Pickens

    Mike, Helen and family, I’m so sorry for your loss. I have such great memories of visiting your house when we lived close by. I always loved talking to your Mama, she always made me feel welcome and special. One of the good memories, among many, is when I had to deliver something for Mama and your Mama had me sit down in the kitchen with her and eat some fresh cookies she made. We had a glass of milk together and talked a little while. She was such a sweet friend and knew just how to make a little girl feel loved. She was a good friend to my Mama and I’ll always have a special memory of her that I cherish. I’ll be remembering you all in prayer now and in the days to come. God bless you all!
