Delores, we are very to hear of your sweet mother’s death. I was looking at the obits on the internet and saw your mom’s name and clicked on it. I have known Delores and her mother and Jimmy (Delores’ husband) for many years and some of their children. My wife and I alway stop at Duck Thru in Lewiston when we are on our way “out of town” for some delicious pizzas Delores made. We will remember you and your family in our prayers. I know how you feel losing a dear mother because I have lost both my mother and father. -Donald and Brandi Shores, Millenium Community, Aulander, NC. ~firstname.lastname@example.org
To All the Family,
I am truly sorry for your loss. I know that she loved each and everyone of you, because she bragged about it all the time. Thinking of all of you. Love Mihcelle Elayah
On behalf of the First Baptist Church of Scotland Neck, we extend our prayers and wishes to the family of Mrs. williams. If our church can ever be of help to the family please let us know.
Delores, Debbie and the rest of your families, I just want to say how sorry I am for your loss. Mamie was always a joy to talk with and spend time with. I didn’t see and talk with her as often the past few years and for that I am sorry. We get so busy with our own families and it takes up so much of our time. But, she always made me smile and was a great lady. She loved with all her heart and was very much loved by all of y’all. Please try and find comfort in knowing she isn’t suffering anymore. Turn to God for strength and guidance and he will see you though the days to come. Please let me know if I can help in anyway. You all are in my thoughts and prayers.
