    To the Ware and Shackelford family, 2 Corinthians 5:8- "But we are confident, and have a good will to be absent rather from the body, and to be present with the Lord." Mr. Silas, Eddie, Nicole and Monique, My family and I offer our deepest condolences. I thank God for the memories of a wonderful woman, thank you for being a second mother a times needed. May God continue to be with you all through you time of grieving. Eric Mulberry and Family
