    Ramona & Wayne,

    You have taken such good care of your mother for many years. I know she is finally going to be
    with her husband, grandson, and great niece. I remember when your father passed away and seeing your
    mother in fairly good health. Her loss to you will not be easy. Take care of each other. You both are very
    special people.

    Love, Sandra

    We are so sorry for your loss. Having a love one leave is never easy. The joy is now she’s with Uncle Roy Mamaw and Papaw , Frank ( her brother ‘Jim’s Dad) Uncle Bug (her other brother) Uncle Doty (her youngest brother) Skip Laster (her niece)) and all of the above mentioned plus so many more. I can almost hear them singing. Bless you and all Aunt Helen’s family that are left behind.

    I was saddened to read this evening of the passing of your dear mother. Your parents were my Sunday School teachers when we were children at Colonial Heights Baptist a half-century ago. I remember both of them as the kindest and most gentle of people. Your mother had an easiness of spirit about her, always a warm smile, and a way of loving children that always made me think of her as an angel. Though I have not seen her or Roy in many years now, my memories of them are fond and fresh.

    I hope that your memories will sustain you in the days ahead, and my fervent wish is for you to know that their influence is felt in the lives of many people in far-flung places that neither your mother or dad likely ever visited. A remarkable woman has gone to be with her Lord.

    Warm smiles,

    I want to add my sincere condolences to the family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Our Heavenly father in His word the Bible calls death an enemy (1Cor. 15:26) which He promises in the very near future to do away with (Rev. 21:4,5) At that time tragedies and accidents will be a thing of the past, no one will ever get sick (Isaiah 33:24) and there will be a reuniting, a bringing back to life instead of losing (John 5:28,29) Please allow these words to be of comfort to you and give you hope. (2Cor. 1:3,4)

    Ramona, I’m so very sorry about the loss of your Mom. I have great memories of your family growing up in Lakecrest and going to church together. Remember that God gives us peace and comfort at exactly the moments we need it.
