Memories Timeline


  1. Dear Wayne, Steven, Uncle Dewey, and Family, Please accept our deepest condolences at the passing of your mother. You will be in our prayers during this great time of sadness. Psalm 121: I will lift my eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord which made heaven and earth. He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber. Just keep looking up and keep your hands in the Masters Hand.

  2. Mr. Wilson and family..My thoughts and prayers are with you. It was indeed my pleasure to have been a neighbor to Mrs. Laura years ago and to have her attend my Senior luncheons and visit with me. She will be sadly missed.

  3. Dear Julia and Family, I am so sorry to hear of the death of your dear mother. This can be such a sad time. I lost my Dad 2 1/2 years ago. Time is a great healer but the ultimate Healer is Jesus Christ and his father, Jehovah. They give us a bright hope for the future. We have through Jesus' death, the hope of the resurrection. Revelation 21:1-5 describes this time as joyful because death will be done away with! I wish each of you much comfort at this time. With warmest regards, Peggy Tupper

  4. We are so very sorry for your loss. I'm sure Ms. Laura will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.

Our love goes out to you all and we will keep you in our prayers

  5. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time. I am truely sorry for the loss of Mrs. Laura, she was a fine woman and one i'll always remember and your family as well. Our years together were short, however, our memories are a life time. Love you all, Patricia
