    Waltrene was a very sweet person. I’ve known her all of my life and can testify she will truly be missed, but the family can find comfort from knowing she is now comforted in the presence of her Lord Jesus. From all of us Masseys: please accept our condolences of love for the Stribling and Bennett families.
