Alice, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I know exactly how you're feeling, since I also lost my mom on Christmas Day. Nothing I can say can ease the pain that I know you're feeling right now. Just rest assured sweety that like my mama, neither of them are suffering anymore. They now have a perfect body and are standing in heaven watching down on us. We both now have guardian Angels to look out after us. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to contact me. I love you.
I was shocked to hear about Martha passing away and am so sorry. I shall always remember her quick wit and the love she had for all of you. I won't be able to attend her service as I no longer drive but my thoughts and prayers will be with you in your loss.
I am so sorry about your loss. May God be with you at this difficult time; my prayers will include those of you left to mourn your loved one. I am Martha's cousin; Elizabeth Ann Hazelwood Hall; daughter of Roy Hazelwood and Elizabeth Elva "Sally" Wray Hazelwood (Richards' sister). May God give you strength to deal with your pain; this seems to be happening with increasing frequency as we all age and are becoming the older generation. This is a painful and difficult thing to face but for all who have accepted Jesus into their heart we will meet again in heaven to see our parents, uncles, aunts, cousins, husbands, children, grandchildren and other family members who have preceded us. Love to you all, Ann
Alice, Ricky and family, we are so sorry for your loss, Martha will truly be missed. Joyce & kyle
