Debra, Vonda, and family, I am sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She and your dad are part of my earliest memories going to church at Bigelow Baptist. I always enjoyed reading her Bigelow News in the Perry County paper when we were in CA...her news from HOME was special to this old girl far away. Love and prayers. So sorry for your loss.
Prayers for comfort and peace today and the days to follow. Love to all the family.
Aunt Eloise You were the best Aunt ever Always that pretty smile and those sparkling eyes You will be missed more than you know We all love you Barbara Betty Shirley Brenda Buddy and David Garrett
Ms. Eloise was a sweet soul. Her sassy demeanor and her precious smile brought joy into any place she entered. She will truly be missed. My condolences and prayers to the family.
My Dear sweet Sister you were everything to me. God saw fit to take you home but just know we will meet again soon. Tell Mom, Dad and Bill I will be there when the Lord says come!
Debra (it is difficult for me to call you by your first name, since you were my librarian) and Vonda and family: I wish peace and rest for you at such a difficult time of loss. God bless you!
Debra and Vonda, I am so sorry to hear of Grannyâ€™s passing. She lived a long and full life. My prayers are with you. May God hold you in His loving arms in the days ahead.
So sad to hear of my dear cousin's passing. We have had wonderful corresponded over the last few years. My sympathy to all her family. We shall meet again.
