Ezzie was asked to pray in the evening church service. She wrote her prayer on a small piece of note paper. It is now yellowed with age, but her words to the Lord are timeless and treasured by the granddaughter who never knew her grandmother.

“Heavenly Father we come this p.m. begging forgiveness for all the things we’ve said and done that was not pleasing to thy sight. Grant we may love better in the future. We thank you for the countless blessing we have recived from day to day. Draw… And direct us through life and at last save us in Heaven. We ask in Jesus name.”
  • In memory of Mary Ezzie Wheeler Driskell, born 1882 in Borden Springs, Alabama – died 1946, Athens, Georgia.
