These thoughts we wish for you all......We wish you peace during the difficult days, comfort in the times of tears and love in every memory you have of this gallant lady. She was a strong woman who worked right along side Johnny to keep the Kimbrel Ranch running and growing all these years! It always felt like coming home whenever I visited with them and they added a lot of joy to my life. She will be greatly missed by us all!

I will sure miss our conversations and Christmas card exchanges. She always invited us to stop in if we were down her way. God be with her. My most heartfelt sympathies to the whole family.
