    We were fortunate to do business and know Dymple for a number of years. People still to this day call wanting to purchase her canned persimmon pulp. She was a very dear sweet lady and she will be sadly missed. Dave Byers and Applacres Employees

    I was truly blessed to work for Mrs. Green for the last 9 years. I am going to miss her and all our great conversations and the smell of her delicious red velvet cakes baking in the oven.
