Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest sympathy during your time of loss. Mr. Raymond was a very dear friend of my dad. I had the pleasure of attending a few trail rides with him and he was a delight to be around. I pray for peace for all of you and my love to Mrs. Elta Mae.

  2. I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to you. I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. Turn to the Holy Scriptures for guidance and to help soothe your heart. Psalms 34:18 assures us that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.

  3. So sorry for the lost of your husband, Looking at the amount of years the both of you were together can one go unnoticed and even though this day you are without him you are never alone. The Lord says it is then that I carried you. Please look to his word the bible for lasting comfort.
