Dear Family, My heartfelt sympathy to you all. My grandmother Lela Woods was Vonnie’s next door neighbor. Some of my fondest memories were being at my granny Woods’ house & Vonnie allowing all of us grandkids to play in her backyard, giving us cookies and extending kindness to us and my sweet granny. She was a faithful friend and watched over my granny for many years until she passed away in 2006. Sending love and prayers during this difficult time. May God bring comfort and peace. Melina Woods

Amazing Grace all took place with anticipation Vonnie completed the race, to see her Savior on heaven's shore. To rest eternally for ever more. A new body, a new robe to wear. Her crown with Jesus, she waited to share! Many a burden down here she had to bare. Oh, but the victory! When the Gates of Pearl she sees! She'll live in a mansion made by The Carpenter's on hand, No sin will ever live in that land. I love you, Vonnie. Peace and Rest to the Family.
