  1. Dear Family, I am so very very sorry about your loss. Mae Belle and I worked together a long time at the clinic and I thought the world of her. She was definitely one of a kind. I’m sorry she and I loss touch after I left Crockett. The last time I visited with her I stopped by the house on a visit there before my Mom moved to be with us in 2005. My prayers are with you all.

  2. I’m sorry to hear of Mae Belles passing . She was a really sweet lady and I always loved to visit with her.

    • Mae Belle began working in the Waller Insurance office in 1959 after her Groveton High School graduation. Although she later began working in the Crockett Clinic office, she remained a loyal family friend. Mae Belle was among the faithful friends who frequently visited my mother and grandmother during the years preceding Mother’s death. Naturally Mae Belle managed the sales desk during Mother’s 2003 estate sale. During my last visit to Crockett some ten years ago, I visited Mae Belle
      in her home. Mae Belle lived her life helping others. She was devoted loving friend.
