    My condolences to the family. Estelle was my mom’s neighbor at Watauga Square. I knew her for the last 5 years. She was a very nice lady and a good friend to my mom Jackee. My prayers are with the family. Susan

    It saddens my heart to hear of the passing of this grand lady, however I know from her own testimony she was anxious to go. I had the privilege of having her as a patient at Quillen Rehab not long ago, and I can truly say she was a blessing to me. My heart goes out to Ms Betty whom Mrs. McKinney dearly loved and who was so dedicated to her. I know she will be missed. May God bless those left behind with the comfort of His word and the memories of this fine lady. Vindetta Fleming, RN “VinDeeda”
