Praying for your family Mr. Ray. -Judy from Dr Bitons office
I am so sorry for your loss. She raised along with you Ray a fantastic family. She will be missed tremendously by everyone that she knew. Take great comfort in the fact she was a women of faith and that she will see you again.
The Wagner family has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. Ray, you were such a special friend to my dad and I heard him speak fondly of you, Ann and your family many times thru the years. I know this will be a hard time for all of you, but you will be without for such a short time compared to the eternity to follow. I will pray for comfort and peace for all. Love, Dyana and family
To the Wagner FamilyI would like to take this time to express my personal condolences to the Wagner family. We are truly sadden to hear about the passing of Margaret A Wagner. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. Truly this is a time to be on the receiving end of getting words of comfort from the family and friends. I know that all will be there to provide the comfort that we need in dealing with our personal lost. However may we also remember that God will also be there for us. And why not, since the scriptures reveal God as the God of all tender mercy and comfort. ( 2 Corinthians 1:3-4) Yes the comfort that He provide will truly touch all grieving hearts. Take for the example the way God is providing true comfort to the Wagner family. On this day God reminds all of loving promise that will soon take place earth wide. I know that Margaret had knowledge of the sacred writings. I wonder how many times did she come across this touching promise from God that will provide blessings to ourselves, and to our departed love ones. For a brief moment, please take note of this touching promise. Directing your attention to the scriptures, God tells us that soon He would call to those in the grave, and that our love ones would hear His voice and stand up in life again. ( John 5:28-29 and Acts 24:15) Oh what a wonderful promise this truly is. The promise is a personal guarantee that our love ones will stand up in life again. That they would be reunited back with their many family members and friends. So the question that all are now confronted with is this; can we envision being reunited back with family members and friends who have died? Yes God wants all to have strong confidence in this loving arrangement. So He has taken the time to preserve nine accounts in the Bible that speaks about this future blessing that will take place earth wide. Here is just one such example tht is recorded at Acts 9:36-42. I hope that all will get a chance to see how the verses apply to Margaret, and to billions of others who have fallen asleep in death, who awaits the resurrection blessing to take place. So may all please keep this promise of God near your heart at all times. Remember that we have God's personal promise which serves as a personal guarantee that life will be restored back to many. Yes when God gives a promise, it becomes reality. For it is impossible for God to lie. ( Titus 1:2)
Ray, I am so sorry to hear of Ann’s desth. Ann and I were in grammar school together and in later years didn’t see each other very often. But when I did, I always enjoyed her sense of humor. You will be in my prayers. Carolyn Lawrence Riley

The thoughts and prayers of the Bryants are with all of you. Ann was such a wonderful person and so kind. She will be missed.
Dear Ray, Darin, Jay and Ashley, I am so heart broken for all of you and the rest of the family. You feel like family to me. Ann and I taught Sunday School together, our kids all did things together. That was a long time ago but the bond will always be there. I pray for all of you adjusting without Ann here but you know she is healed and will be looking down on you all. She was a special lady and she loved her family. With my love. Bobbie Highfill .
Please accept my sincere condolences for the loss of your dear family member and close friend. Sickness and death was never part of our Creator’s purpose for humankind. He created us to live forever in a beautiful paradise free from sickness, pain and even death. Please know that God yearns to fulfill his promises for his creation and will soon end death forever and bring back to life your dear loved one. (Isaiah 25:8; Psalms 37:11; Acts 24:15)
