Gracie, Rick and I only found out about your mother’s passing this morning at church. Please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you. We loved her and are so thankful we came to know the two of you while you were members at Refuge. I am sorry that we were could not be at the funeral; We were in Charlotte at another funeral on Thursday. God’s strength and blessings to you, Gracie. Love, Rick and Sandra
So very sorry for your loss. It’s very hard to lose that last living parent, but comforting to believe that you’re folks are together again, watching down on you. Miss seeing all of you. take care.
Sincere sympathy to the family from Mary, Jim and family. Thinking of you during this difficult time but knowing that our moms are not reunited and telling secrets in heaven.
I so remember Aunt Rose, Uncle Ralph and family and all the times the family came and stayed with us on the farm. I miss Gloria and the good times we had. Would love to reconnect with all the relatives but especially Gloria. Please email me. My sincere sympathy and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time. I will always cherish the memories I have of Aunt Rose.
Rose was a precious lady and I loved her very much. She would take my face in her hands at church and kiss my cheek and tell me she loved me. That was so sweet and meaningful for me since I lost my own Mother 10 years ago. Heaven is richer with her there. I will pray for your comfort. God bless you all. Love In Christ, Pat Ingle
