Memories Timeline


  1. God has called home an Angel. We will miss her. My prayers go out to the family during this time of sorrow.

  2. I met Mrs Margie for the first time in 6th grade. Andrea came over to spend the night for Halloween. Through the years as Andrea and I became closer so did Mrs. Margie and I. She was an amazing woman. She truly had a heart of gold. To Mr. Mitch, Andrea, Cori, and Regina I am honored to have known your mother and I am so sorry for your loss. You guys are in my prayers!

  3. Mitch – Please read Proverbs 31:10 -31 when you have time. It explains and praises the life of a good wife and companion. May God bless you with His peace and understanding in your time of grief and loss. Please know that your brothers are close by and are ready to come to your aid if you call. Sincerely,R B Smith
