Our thoughts and prayers are with Senator David Purdue this week.  His mother, Gervaise Wynn Perdue, passed away on Sunday evening.  Gervaise Perdue was a school teacher for more than 3o years.  In lieu of flowers, the family asks that gifts be made in her name to any charity, the Alzheimer’s Association at 886 Mulberry St., Macon, Georgia, 31201, or the First Baptist Church of Warner Robins, at 1135 Watson Boulevard, Warner Robins, Georgia, 31093.
