    I loved Cousin Mathilda. I have a saddened heart. She represent my mom to me in every way and she will be greatly missed. My soul is consoled by knowung shes with her family that has passed on and with my mom Gracie Gradney. For all the visits and the great cooking and those pies and her words of faith and wisdon I thank her and my life would not have been the same without her. I want her children to know she meant a lot to me and she was as close to an angel as I know of what angels are. Love, Sherry Gradney Bowman
