I am so sorry for the loss of you mom and grandma. I was thinking about her the other day and wondering how she was doing. I just saw this in the paper today so I wasn’t able to go to the service. God bless you all.
Terry, Betty & families; I am sorry to hear about the loss of your Mother. I didn't know until I read it in the paper. After several years, she finally gave me her secret recipe for her DELICIOUS cornbread! I still use that recipe. Her crochet projects & hand sewn quilts were beautiful. May God give you peace & comfort during this time of loss. Martha, James Ray & Alexia Thomas
I am so very sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
Prayers and hugs across the miles for your family. Your Grandmother must be filled with joy and love as she looks down on you from heaven.
I worked with Mary Maulden at C.A.D.C. for 10 years; She was a great person and friend.
Joey and I are so sorry about the loss of your dear Mother. She had a very full life and blessed withseven wonderful children. Our deepest sympathies and love are with you all.
Grandma Alice was my ex-mother in-law or as she always said there is no x you will always be my daughter in law. She was the grandmother to my two boys Terry Simmons JR and Justin Simmons. She took Terry to church every week and also to many preaching appointments. She loved us and we loved her. When a huge ice storm hit many years back Grandma Alice stayed with my boys and myself for a few months. She made the best Cubed Steak and Tomato Gravy in the world. And let's not forget the sweet Tea. I am so blessed to have had her in my life. To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. Take your rest and walk those streets for Gold. Until we meet again. Love you
Mary was a lovable likable Christian. And she was the first one to welcome me to Olive Hill. We shared a special interest as our birthdays was the same month and day.

Momma Mary welcomed me into her life and treated me like her daughter… she taught me how to plant flowers, burn leaves, crochet, casinos, church camp, vacation bible school, anything to do with church & Olive Hill……… only thing I regret is that when I got divorced, I didn’t keep in contact with her!! Love you momma Mary
