Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Family,
    I was sad for you to hear of your mom’s passing, but happy for her to be with your dad, Dan and other family members in heaven. Can you just see the rejoicing up there? I hope they met up with my dad and had a great reunion. I recently read a book called, “Imagine Heaven”. It was a comfort to me to imagine my dad walking around heaven.
    I have a lot of good memories of your family when we were growing up. One thing that I remember about your mom was her letting me help her cook in that cabin by the creek by BYC. She was always so nice to me. My mom and I will be praying for God’s grace to show up for you in the coming days and weeks ahead. We read about and sing about God’s grace, but times like this is when God’s grace shows up for us in a big way.

  2. Aunt Euna, I will miss you very much! I will forever hear your voice on the phone calling to say “I’ve got some books for you” and how we would visit for hours when I came to get them. I enjoyed hearing you and Aunt Vondell reminisce when I brought her over there to visit, as well. I’m happy thinking of you with Jesus though and reuniting with Uncle Bob, Danny, Granny, Micah and your siblings, including my dad, and all the other loved ones gone before….

  3. Although you may have known this day was coming you are never ready for it. Losing your mom is like losing a part of yourself. I lost my mom 20 years ago and still miss her so much. May God give the family peace during this time and the days ahead.

  4. I know there are no words that can ease your pain. Just know that I’ll always be here for you no matter what.Sending healing prayers and comfort during this tough time. You’re not alone. I’m here to be a shoulder to cry on and an ear to listen to anything that you may want to share. I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing your mom, but I’m sure she was a special person because she raised an amazing human being: you Wishing you peace and comfort during this unimaginable time…. Friend to Steve

  6. My husband and I will miss her sweet fellowship. She was a grand lady. I enjoyed her as my Sunday School teacher. Our sincere condolences to the family. Gail and Horace Yates

  7. One of the sweetest, kindest ladies in this world. We loved her dearly and will miss her greatly and we will see her again. Prayers for the family.

  8. Euna was the most precious person we new. Every card we ever received always told us Jesus Loves You . My last get well card I received was sent on December 6 and it was such an encouragement to me to know she was praying for me. We loved her dearly.
