    Aunt Marva Lee, you are and always will be such a treasure to our family. We all love you so much. I can only imagine the homecoming you just had with everyone who went on before you. Save a place at the table for the rest of us. We will be on our way someday.

    Eddie and Family,
    Our prayers are with you during the loss of your Mother. While we only met her once, we know she was a wonderful lady. Cherish the memories.

    Marva was special: a special woman, a true “lady”,
    a pillar of the community & her church….a truly special friend! Her kind & gentle nature…and her beautiful smile…will be missed by many. The family of Mary Ann & Dee Yates will miss this sweet lady with fond memories!

    Our sincere sympathies go out to all of her family with heartfelt prayers during this difficult time. Thank you for sharing this beautiful lady…and her equally special Phillip…with all of us!

    Kathy & Larry Tankersley
