Memories Timeline


  1. Connie~What a wonderful picture of Sherman. I had not seen him in several years since I was staying away from large crowds due to my parent’s health issues, then staying with Mama after Daddy passed, and then Sherman was sick. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Your Sister In Christ, Patricia Moss-Shackelton

  2. Harold, Betty, and Family,
    We were so sorry to learn of the passing of your brother. We were greeted by a beautiful sunrise this morning from the Lord and on Tuesday, Sherman was greeted by our beautiful Son Himself when he left this world for heaven. What a glorious time, your sweet brother is having with his Lord. It is still difficult to say goodbye to our loved ones. Our prayers will continue for each of the family to be comforted and given peace from our Savior.
    Our Love in Jesus,
    Royce & Gwenda

  3. Dear Harold,
    Bron and I send our deepest sympathy in the passing of your brother. May God give you and your family peace in your loss and may His hope carry you through to that day when you will see your brother again.
