To you Ms Anna, the entire Metz Family, friends, neighbors, associates and anyone who knew Mama, I and my wife Connie send our most sincere condolences. Words are hard to come by at a time like this but I am so glad that I had personal contact with Mama for the last few years. Everyone says she was a good, sweet lady. It matters not when she was born or died, its all she did in between that she will be remembered for. I for one won't forget her, her smile, her upbeat personality and her pretty little smile. God bless you all from us here in California........

Ms. Griffin was one of my Meals on Wheels clients for a year or so. She brightened my day so much, always asking about my family and having such a positive outlook even on days she may not have felt great. I started out as a stranger to her but quickly became her friend. She had such a sweet tender heart. I'm so sorry for the family who lost such a matriarch.

I met Ms. Griffin through one of the Hall County agencies serving the elderly. I was a stranger at first, but quickly grew to become a friend. She was just that way; open, unassuming, tender, wise, trusting. She made my day every visit with her caring and admonitions to 'be careful out there.' She would ask about my family and share stories. I know she was loved by her family and will be missed terribly. I'm blessed to have known her such a short time near the end of her long and fulfilling life.
