My whole family had a great respect for this Revelle family. My Mother “Ruth” babysat for the kids and my sister “Ozelle” went to college with Magaret. I remember her well while growing up in Murfreesboro. Please know my thoughts are with you. …Ike
Chuck, Meg, Henry, Emily and your respective families,
I was very sorry to read this morning on the passing of your mother. As far back as I can remember, she was always nice to me and made me welcome in the house through our sleepovers, Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, basketball games, war in the ravine, and study sessions in high school. She always showed remarkable patience with us all during our growing up years. Her chocolate chip cookies were the best in town. I regret I am not living nearby and cannot attend the services, but will be thinking of you all on Sunday.
Again my condolences in your loss,

Meg, My thoughts and prayers are with you. I saw the notice of your mom’s death in the paper and I know how sad you must be to loose her. What a joy you and your family must have been to her for all of these many years. I think about you often and it is such a nice service offered at this time so I can be in touch with you through this site.
