    Miss Belva was the backbone of our church. She always smiled and asked how Mom and I were doing. No one will be able to fill her shoes or lack of shoes at that organ. She was never afraid to give us a little boggy woggy with the piano and a sole. She will be missed.

    Our entire Proffitt family (Tommy, Eve, Daniel, Paul, Janie, and Tim) express our sincerest sympathy and prayers for Belva’s children. She was a wonderful neighbor and friend to our Mom, Pauline. The six of us remembeted her fondly and shared with each other memories last night. We pray that God will lead you through the valleys of the shadow of death and he will not forsaken you.
