To Inez's children and brothers and sisters, You have my deepest sympathy. The ones I remember most are Reva, Freddie and Inez. I was so sorry to read of Inez's passing, but she will not suffer anymore. Your loss is Heaven's gain. I am a friend of Reva's and went to school with Reva, Freddie and Inez. Reva was in my room. We all went to Old Savannah Baptist Church together. I am praying for your family. Shirley Cabe Maxwell Spence
