  • My Aunt Marlene was as close to an angel as a person could be here on this earth. I will miss her so much. But, I have all my wonderful memories of her beautiful smiles, chuckles, hugs, singing, and her love for all. I know she is smiling and rejoicing because she young, whole, and with all her loved ones who have passed on, and that I will be with her again some day. She left us, but She left behind her wonderful children and grandchildren who are evidence of her great love and commitment to our Heavenly Father and her family. I love you, Aunt Marlene, from your niece, Linda Marlene!!!

  • my dear friend, you will always be in my heart..Say hello to my John when you see him
    dear family , bless you at this time.

    David and Sandra,

    Our hearts and prayers are with you-we did not know your Mom, but we know she was a great lady and mother because she raised you and we loved and miss you as neighbors.

  • To Mrs. Alston’s family, I’m very sorry for your loss. I wanted to offer you some comfort that I’ve found in the Bible. In John 11:25 Jesus said “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” It’s my hope that you can draw comfort and strength from this promise that we can see the loved ones we have lost again. (John 5:28,29)
