Condolence & Memory Journal


I lost contact with the Rackleys' after I moved from Greenville. I knew Donnie and Ellen(that is the name I knew her by) Ricky and Kathy and the rest of the Rackley family from Eden Church. I taught Kathy and Rick in the Primary Class. Ellen was such a sweet, kind and lovely lady. The family has my sincere sympathy in the loss of their mother, grandmother and sister.
