One of the sweetest ladies we ever knew. She will be missed but we will see her again.
To All the Family of Mrs. Thompson. I am so sad for you but not for Mrs. Thompson. It is people like her that make Heaven truly Heaven. She was ALWAYS so good to me when I would go home with Pat. You never forget people that were good and loving to you when you were a child. I will always remember her.
To the family we send or deepest sympathy and prayers at this time. Miss Helen was a very special person and her lovely singing will be missed but she will be a great addition to the heavenly choir.
My thoughts and prayers are with you. Good Grandmas are so special! I know you will miss her as I miss mine. Your Grandmother and I share December 14th birthdays. She has the look of a precious saint. Love and Prayers, Belinda
Marcy…so sorry to hear about the passing of your grandmother. In reading her obituary…I was so glad to read that she was a believer and that she is now with her Lord and Savior. Indeed, what a comfort that she is no longer suffering but in the arms of the One who loves her dearly. May you find His peace and comfort knowing His Word is true and that your loved one is safe in His arms. Much love to you and your family!
It was a pleasure to visit Helen with the ladies from Gethsemane Baptist Church at the Hendersonville Health and Rehab each week. We go to bless and encourge the patients, but she always blessed and encouraged us. Her love for God, her family, and the love she showed us is a wonderful inspiration. Our deepest sympathy to all her loving family.
