Memories Timeline


  1. For the past few years, during mowing season, the highlight of my working week was the day I mowed Tincy’s grass. Every week she would greet me with a smiling face and the familiar, “Hey, how are ya?” The fall of the year would come, the leaves would fall and Tincy would call, “are you going to rake my leaves?” I would tell her no, but she knew better. I would go. Time changes everything, but the little things will always be remembered and I will not forget those priceless moments with Tincy. My comforting prayers to the family.

  2. Rick and Family,
    I am so sorry to hear about your mom. We certainly will be praying for you and your family. God bless you and may the Salvation of God fill your hearts always.

  3. Sending our prayers to the whole family for your loss of this special person. It’s never easy to let go but you have lots of memories to look back on. 🙏💗

  4. The Anchor holds despite the storm… Our love & prayers to our special Family!…. Sammy & Brenda Brim, North Wilkesboro

  5. Sending my deepest sympathy and love to Tincy’s family today. So grateful for her and your family’s care to us (Chris & Christy) when we were young. Keeping you all close in my thoughts and prayers.

  6. Linda & Family,
    So sorry to hear about your Mother. May God bless you and comfort you all as only he can.

  7. Kevin, Gail and I are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of your beloved Mother. Rest assured that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. She is safely home in the bosom of the Lord,

  8. Kevin, I was so sorry to hear of your mothers passing from my son, Robert (Hall). He talks so highly of you and your family during those Mars Hill Day and beyond. May God surround you with his love, comfort, strength and peace for today and the days to come.
