    So sorry to hear about the loss of your beautiful mother. She was a wonderful person and friend. We enjoyed talking to her each week when we delivered her meals each week for the past 18 months. May she rest in peace forever. Brenda and Stanley Rosenberg

  2. Julia Jones Williams says:

    Mrs. Cranman was my sister’s and my favorite saleswoman at Levy Jewelers. She sold us many fine pieces of jewelry over the years and always knew us by name; she called us “the Jones girls.” It was a pleasure to have her take care of us. When my original (and plain) wedding band was lost I sent my husband to see Mrs. Cranman at the Oglethorpe Mall store. She sent him home with a lovely gold band glittering with diamonds. May she rest in peace.
