Odetta.....It has been many years since you and I attended school together in Livingston, but I wanted to send you deepest condolences on the death of your mother. I have fond memories of our childhood....life moves too fast. Prayers for you and your family.
I was saddened to hear of Mary Alice's death. We were neighbors for many years on Linder Mountain. She was always there for her many friends and neighbors in their time of need. One fond memory I have of her is when my Mom passed away. She knew I loved fried green tomatoes. She brought a plate full of them. I ate almost the whole thing! She will be missed but I'm sure she is enjoying all the joys of heaven and seeing all of her loved ones and friends who have gone on before. :)
I'm praying for your strength and comfort in this time of separation and sorrow. She could always light up a room with her laugh and mischief and fun. How blessed I am to have so many memories of your dear Mother and my Aunt.
I am so to hear of the passing of this fine lady. I have many good memories of her over the years of my life. She was always kind and a help to others. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers for her family.
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing. She's in the best place she can be now without any pain. She'll be so very missed.
Dear Robbins family, We've never met but I'd like to express my condolence and deep regrets for your loss for this enemy death is our worse enemy and brings always much grief and pain and it's at such times as this comfort and hope is needed and I'd like to share where I found this when this enemy took my entire family. I found great comfort and hope in what Jehovah Gods word the Bible says at John5:28,29 for there we're told we'll see our love ones again in the resurrection when Jesus brings them back here on earth and Isaiah25:8 states that this enemy death will be swallowed up forever. I found help at jw.org(search:comfort) also and all this is what helps me cope with my loss and get through each day because I miss my family so much. I truly hope you'll find some help from this because it's my purpose in sharing this with you for we all need hope and comfort at times like this. Please feel free to let me know at [email protected] and please know that I do share your grief and hope to hear from you. Sincerely, GM
