    Dear Robert, Al, Connie, Jeff, Pam and Families, I am deeply sorry for your loss of your precious wife and Mother and grandmother. My heart is broken into million of pieces for your loss and our loss. Mutt was the glue that kept The Hodges Family together through out the years. She was the most loving, caring, giving Woman of God I have ever known in my life time. Never any unkind words came from her mouth. In all the years I never seem any anger from Mutt. When she gave, she gave her all. I could not ask for a better 1st cousin than Mutt. She loved her God, her husband, her children, her grandchildren , other family members and friends. Mutt, We will miss you and your beautiful smile. No one can ever fill your shoes. I am deeply sorry I will not be able to attend the services due to illness, my love, my prayers and spirit will be with you all. I have great and loving memories and I will always treasure them forever. Till we meet again Mutt, rest in peace in the loving arms of Jesus. Love you with all of my heart.

    Dear Robert, Pam, Connie, Jeff, Al and Grandkids/Great-grandkids. My heart is heavy with grief over the loss of Myrtice. She was a dear friend of mine, so much like a mother to me. She holds a special place in my heart and it was a privilege to know her. We worked together for 11 years and went on to remain friends for another 24 years. All of my children came to know and love her. We could not come to Savannah without see her. She will be greatly missed and will forever be remembered. My prayers are with you Robert and all your family. Until we meet again on the other side .. I love you Myrtice and will always miss your love and kindness.
