Condolences

So sorry for the loss of your mom. She was a kind and funny lady I remember from a long time ago when hanging out with Gail. She always made me feel welcome. I’m glad she later got to enjoy the Florida sunshine.

I remember your sweet mom from so long ago with Gail. She had such a sense of humor and was always kind. I always felt welcomed in their home. Condolences to you all.

My deepest sympathy to Gail & Ronnie. I had a lot of fun with Edath over the yrs. playing cards at Essies.She was one of the sweetest persons I've ever met. I know she's already missed. Peace to your hearts.

She was a gift from God as an Aunt. Very special lady.

Though we only met your mom a time or two we could tell what kind of person she was and we praise God for her and her life and the legacy that she has left behind. We know that she is in the presence of our Lord and we pray that you feel His arms around you in your pain as she does in blissful joy. We love you.

Ron and Donda, sorry to hear of Clara’s passing. You’re in our families thoughts and prayers.

Ron, Judy, Sarah, Gail, and family--My memories of this dear lady date way back to the early 1980s, but I know that her influence on your lives has been ongoing and deep and will be lasting. How blessed you were to have a godly (grand)mother! Her absence from this world has surely cast a pall over your day-to-day lives, but the hope of reunion through resurrection shines through loss. Christopher, Effie, and my parents join me in praying that you'll sense God's tender care for you as you mourn. Much love, Marti (for the Eadses and Greenes)
