Sharron, I was sorry to hear about your Mom. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love your favorite sister-in-law.
Sharon and Rodney, I’m very sorry for the loss of your mom. I sure do cherish the memories of the days my mama and I spent n the beauty shop so many years ago. I have not seen your mother in a very long time. Over the years, I have been blessed to see the two of you every now and then. I’m lifting you up in prayer.
Elaine (Blaine & Eunice Johnson’s daughter)
Rodney & Sharron. So sorry to hear your mom had passed away. I know you’ll miss her. She and your dad were always really nice to me and my brothers. I would have been there to visit except I’m retired and living near Beaufort, SC.
My Very Dear Friend,
Our time as friends was ever so short, but so very special to me. You touched my life in so many ways. Your smile and touch will forever be with me. You stole my heart.
I’ll miss tucking you in but I know you are dancing with the angels now.
Rest now my dear sweet friend.
Rodney, You & your family are in my thoughts and prayers. Lisa & Jay Taylor
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this sad time in your life. Ms Evelyn loved her family, and your love and support meant so much to her. Sharron you were there most every day with Macky’s support doing everything possible to make her happy and comfortable. She loved the flowers Rodney would bring her, and really got a chuckle out of the sun-dress he brought her. And, she always had a sparkle in her eyes after seeing her grand’s and great grand’s.
I met Ms Evelyn when she and my mom, MS Birdie, became bosom buddies at Universal Health Care. What a joy it was to know her as she shared her witty ways, and her love for Christ with me. When asked, “How are you?” she always said, “Fine.” She would say, “I’m trusting in Him” when we read from His Word, or listened to Brother Brian’s CD, or Elvis Presley’s Sacred Performances. Her joy was grounded in her relationship with Christ, and during hardship, or what she experienced, she relied on Christ strength within her. I thank God for making a way to see her again.
To The Family, You are in our
thoughts and prayers in the
passing of your loved one.
Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Mrs. Orr was such a sweet, dear Christian lady who will be missed beyond words. I know her family loves her so much especially her wonderful daughter who was usually there with her whenever we would come for a visit. Thank you for being by her side. We love each of you very much. Thank you for sharing this sweet lady with us.
Rodney, I am so sorry for your loss. She was so good to me. May you find peace in God in these heartbreaking days ahead. Sincerely, Terry Hamilton
