Condolences from family and friends

Joy, Fig, Ralph, and Diane, My heart is saddened by the passing of my friend. Oh yes she will be missed and I want you to know I will be here for you if at any time you need me. However, no one can take the place of a Mother. I loved her and wish I had visited more, but isn't that the way things happen! My sympathy to the family and just know I love you all.

I am blessed to have known Ms. Eula Mae for the past 20 years! She was always a genuine friend; for at least the first 10 years baked me something special for the holidays! She will be missed! Prayers of sympathy will continue to ascend for the family during the difficult days that are ahead. I do believe, however, that we are not very far from the great resurrection morning! "Even so, come Lord Jesus!" Rev 22:20. Ralph and Joy, I want to "thank you" both for the opportunity to minister to her at Autumn Care and for the honor you gave me by letting me have her service!
