Mary Lee was such a sweet Lady. She was very close to my Grandma Christine. It meant the world to Grandma to have a close sister.

I am Shelia M Tinsley, the Ministry Assistant at Flat Rock Baptist Church. I would like to share my condolences to the family of Mrs Finley. I never had the privilege of meeting Mary Lee, but I felt like I knew her. Oftentimes, I said a prayer for her as I prepared her weekly mailing which included the church bulletin. I can say that the members of Flat Rock never forgot her, even after she wasn't able to attend church. I shared her address with many members who loved her and sent her cards.
My husband and I are praying for the Finley family.
