I want to express my deepest sympathy to the family of Ms. Cordell. I would try to visit or say to her on a daily basis. She was such a sweet soul. To her daughter: you are a wonderful daughter who showed so much love and devotion to her. She used to love her clothes you would bring her, You dressed her beautifully. God bless.
