Memories Timeline


  1. (My grandmother, Mamie Beard Richard, was sister to Eugene's dad, Roy Beard.)I was young when Aunt Vivian passed away but remember how awe struck I was that one of Eugene's aunts would take him into her home to live and raise him as her own. Even at my young age, I remember thinking how giving and unselfish this woman must be. May she receive a great eternal blessing!lessed!!!

  2. I am so extremely sorry for your loss. Please accept my sincerest and deepest condolences, I know how hard it is to lose someone. I wanted to leave you with a scripture that I hope can bring you comfort during this difficult time. Acts 24:15 talks about how we can look forward to a resurrection of the dead to a restored and perfect paradise Earth under God's coming kingdom.
