    Lawrence Lipford:

    After church services many times I would walk over to the guest house from First Baptist Church and speak to Mrs. Bertha. As soon as I would walk up she would always ask how my dad, Thomas Lipford was and tell me what a good man he is and how good he to her when he had the store. She was a very kind lady and I will miss having the opportunity of getting to speak to her and seeing her in her rocking chair on the front porch. This hit me by surprise when I saw this on this site. I will keep the family in my prayers for their huge loss.
