Cindy and your family,
I am saddened by the loss of your Mother. I feel she is at peace and I hope you will
face the coming days in peace and contentment. It will be very hard indeed, and this is a part of life
which is so very hard to understand sometimes. May God bless you and yours and be happy with
your memories.
Love you,

Dear Cindy,
You always spoke so lovingly of your mother so I know she was the sweetest thing. I know you have millions of wonderful memories and I pray they help you through this time of sadness. Blessings to you and your family. I love you.

In our early days of marriage and move from the country, Barbara and Maynard were our closest friends. We spent time together almost every day either visiting or camping on Kerr Lake. Both Barbara and I were very busy in our careers and our physical closeness was impacted, but our hearts were connected and remained so through the death of Maynard and until her own shocking demise. Those days and duties at Hester Baptist Church were a common bond, and she was truly a child of God. My heart is heavy with grief not only for myself but for the family, including her siblings and cousins. May God be with and lift up your family in the closeness of His arms, but we know that Heaven has now gained another beautiful angel.
