    Dear Sonja & family, The Scales family extends our sympathies to all of you during this sad time. But we rejoice in knowing she’s home with JESUS now. We made many memories throughout the years, didn’t we? We shared a lot of laughs together, especially our trip to Washington, D.C. when I forgot to pack my underwear LOL. We made hundreds of meatballs together for you and Eric’s graduation open house. We shopped and ate out many times. She loved those grandson’s and talked about them frequently as we Christmas shopped. May GOD strengthen y’all now. Call me.

    Sonja and family, I am so very sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed waiting on your mom and talking to her when her shopped at Carl’s IGA. She was such a pleasant lady and I will always remember her. May she Rest In Peace.

    Sonja and family – Thea and I just read about your mom’s passing. We are so sorry to hear about her death. We have moved to Arizona so the Greenville news gets to us a bit more haphazardly. We were so fortunate to have Margaret as our neighbor (and you too!). We have many happy memories of our time in Greenville – and certainly the good neighbors we had on North Race St. played a role in that.
