To the family of Mrs. Betty- I was saddened to learn of your loss the other night when I went to Creekside to vist my mother, Christine Pierce. As you know they seemed to become good roommaates over the past few months and checked on each other. I also appreciate you checking on and being so kind to my Mom when you were visiting. I will continue to keep you in prayer during this difficult time.
Becky, Beth and families. As you already know, you, your mom and dad all hold a special place in my life, especially the memories of our childhood. Your mom was always there, in the center of all we did together. She was always there at any given moment we needed
her while allowing us to explore and discover the world around us. She was witty and a talented lady with her sewing machine. I am thankful for the presence she had in my life.
Her memories will always have a special place in my heart.
Wayne and I share your loss to heaven’s gain.
