    May God comfort you our deepest Sympathies Dennis and Roxanne gordon

  • I have so much love and respect for Marydel. The statement that she lived for and loved for her family could not be more true. I will miss her so very much, as everyone else who knew her will. Many hugs to her family in this time of sadness.

  • My deep condolences to the Fleagle/Messer family,
    I was really touched by the loss of your loved one. When a precious loved one falls asleep in death, it brings to mind God’s precious son Jesus. It is comforting to note how he viewed death. I would like to share it with you from the gift that the Most High God has given to each & everyone of us. Yes, His written word the Bible. In the Book of John chapter 11 verses 11-14 please, notice that Jesus viewed death as one Sleeping. He viewed death in such a comforting way. And, the Most High God promises that we can have the opportunity to see our loved ones again in perfect health (Psalms 83:18, Acts 24:15, & Isaiah 33:24). He even says where: Psalms 37:11 and for how long Psalms 37:29). I really hope that these promises were as comforting to you as they were to us when our daughter died and also when my precious husband of 50 years fell asleep in death due to cancer. I truly understand the pain that comes from losing someone so precious to us.
    Written to you in deep sympathy,

  • I was shocked to hear of the loss of Marydel. I met her through her son Alan. What a wonderful lady and mother. The loss will be great but the bond the family has and all the wonderful memories will get them through. My heart goes out to those I know and all f the family Fleagle’s and Messer’s. May God be with you all.
