Marlethea and Malcom would like to give special acknowledgement to Terry and Susee McClure, owners of Connie’s Manor Home in Tucson, AZ for the love and care they gave their Mom during her stay. “Because of them our Mom thrived, felt safe and comfortable knowing she was not only closer to her children, but loved and cared for by our extended family. We cannot express how much we love and appreciate them. We will always be grateful. They are and continue to be a great blessing in their ministry of providing assisted living.”

Also, they would like to thank the “Collinsville First Assembly of God (where our parents attended for almost 60 years), Pastor Bradley, and our church family for allowing the use of their facilities and providing our family dinner. While we no longer live here we will never forget the lessons we were taught by our church family.”
