I was so sorry to hear that your mom passed away. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. I used to live in Union and I went to the Union Methodist Church. I was more friends with Jean and Junior, but my thoughts are with each of you. May the good Lord bless you and give you His peace. Take care. I know how you feel. Trust in the Lord…He will help you.
Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time.It’s not easy to loose someone especially your mother but just remember that she is at peace and not suffering anymore.
I’m sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I just want to let you know that I’m thinking of you and your family and please let me know if I can do anything for you. Your friend.
My Grandmother was a wonderful and loving woman and didnt care how you where and what you did she would tell you how to get it straight and then tell you that she loved you. She will be missed so much. Even though I didnt get to see her much before the lord took her I will always remember the times that I did have with her. The last time I saw her she was in so much pain and she still pulled me to her and told me that she was going to a better place and to make sure I took care of my mama and that she loved me. She even told me not to cry because she was gonna be ok. That was my grandmother not worried about how she felt just worried about the other. I love you Grandma and will miss you more than you will now. Rest in Peace and I will see you again. I LOVE YOU GRANDMA!!!!!
Audrey’s change has come. All heaven rejoices to receive her. We all rejoice at having been richer for knowing her. Though she is no longer seen in this world, she lives on in the place that has been her most cherished goal. Cherryl and I were most blessed to have had her in our lives. The circle is not broken…we will meet again.
Your family will be in our hearts and prayers. Remember the good times, and she will always be in your heart.
