Memories Timeline


  1. I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you. Although, I haven’t seen any of you in years I am a cousin. I am Uncle Wiley’s daughter (Aunt Gertrudes brother). When I saw Willie’s picture I couldn’t believe how much he looked like my Daddy. Again, know that you are in my prayers and I know that he is in a better place.

  2. To Patsy, your children and grandchildren, my deepest sympathies on your tremendous loss. Heartfelt condolences also to Roland, Madrey, Glyn, Zona, Felton and your families. I am your first cousin, youngest daughter of Ben and Altha Wren, and at almost 81 I still have fond childhood memories of your visits to our home. The last time I saw Hayes (and others of the family) was at Daddy’s funeral in 1985…we were so grateful for your presence. Hayes bears a remarkable (and equal)likeness to his Wren ancestry and to Uncle Madison. As their descendant he was
    undoubtedly a man of integrity, lived
    an exemplary life, and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
    My thoughts and prayers are with each of you.
