Guestbook

  1. A GRANNY THAT WAS LOVED BY MANY. SHE WAS "GRANNY" TO ALL WHETHER SHE WAS FAMILY OR NOT. A KINDER SOUL MAY NOT BE KNOWN. GRANNY WILL BE MISSED BY ALL WHO HAD THE CHANCE TO KNOW HER. OUR DEEPEST SYMPATHY TO JIMMY, SANDY, TOMMY, PATSY, JOE, HOPE, JEFFERY, DANIELLE, KAREN, MARK, KATIE, DREW, JACK, HATTIE, AND LIZA.

  2. "Life is eternal, and love is immortal to the family that loses a loved one." Though her death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing, save the limits of our personal sight. May Mrs. Florence rest in peace, now that her time spent here is completed! To all of the McClelland's, I send my personal condolences to each member of her family. Especially Jim, Sandy. Joe, Jeff, Danielle and their babes, Hattie and Liza. At one time I considered them a part of my own family! There is pertinent evidence and signs of longevity genes, for her ancestors.

  5. I was so very saddened to hear this news. Your mom was a lovely lady and I will always remember her with great fondness. I'm so sorry I couldn't make it to the church. May your family find comfort in the Lord.

  6. I absolutely loved Granny — not one bad word could ever be said about that great lady. I very much enjoyed sharing many Sunday dinner's with the McClelland family. Granny sure could cook! I'm very saddened at the news of her passing and my prayers go out to the family. Till we meet again Granny!!! – Paul C
