Memories Timeline


  1. For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1 (RSVB) May you find comfort in knowing your loved one is with God — resting in perfect peace.

  2. I was the maintenance supervisor for Villa Maria for several years and got to know Maria very well. She was a little angel. One of the funniest things she ever said was one time I fixed something in her apartment and I asked her if I did a good job and she said yes, I said so do I get some ice cream and she said yes if you go to Wall Mart and buy it. You can be proud of her in you memories.

  3. I will always remember our family trips to the camp in Pollock and swimming at Pat's. I will remember the visits to NC. I will always love you Aunt Marie. I miss you and Uncle Lee. You will always be in my heart Dawn Shell

  4. Lane and Sherry, I know that the passing of your mother, Marie, has cast a shadow of sadness over your hearts. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. I pray that time will make the wonderful memories of your mom much greater than the loss you now feel.

  5. Mr. Mrs. Haley and family, I am so sorry for the great loss of you mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. I will be keeping you and your family in my prayers. I pray that our Lord will comfort you especially in this difficult time. Kathy Jurls
