Sorry for your loss of Mrs. Griffith. One of the most dedicated Christian people to share the Gospel I have ever known. At at early age at First Baptist Church of Carthage I remember she could teach the bible. No telling how many boomer's lives she changed by her example of loving Jesus. And then I had the privilege of attending SBU with Loretta and Gene.

We are sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. We cherish the friendship we had with your mother through the years, even meeting each of you guys. Our friendship began when she was attending college at Missouri Southern and continued after she and Gilbert graduated. We enjoyed her on several trips we made together. Our thoughts are with you at this time as we know you will miss her dearly.
