Memories Timeline


  1. Thinking of you during this time. I have been there. I think it is one of the hardest things you have to go through.

  2. Mary and Linda:

    Just wanted you to know that we are thinking of you and saying a little prayer for you tomorrow. We know how difficult these times are. Ms. Georgia, who stayed with your mother some, is a neighbor of ours. She is also very amazing for her age. Hope everything goes well tomorrow for you.

  3. Linda & Mary:

    Your mother was always seen by me as a very special lady while I was growing up at Enka Baptist. Now she and my Mom have new bodies in Christ with no more pain. Praise God for His promise that we will get to join them some day. Knowing how much you will miss her I am lifting you and your families up in prayer at this time.

    Love you in Christ;

    Marvin & Shirley
