So sorry to hear of the loss of your mother….she was such a dear soul. I will always remember her sweet smiling face. I can still see her sitting on the left side of us at church. Prayers for you and your family as you go through the coming days….Creator is by your side….and He will hold you in His loving arms. I think the Durham congregation is complete up in Heaven now….may she rest in peace.

Ruth Allen was one of the kindest and sweetest ladies. I remember the last time I was with her…it was at Jerry’s house for Thanksgiving quite a few years ago. She and I had not seen each other for a long time so it was so good to see each other. She, without hesitation, came up to me and hugged me and said, “Joy, you are still as beautiful as ever.” She always was so gracious and complimentary with her words and with her actions too. What a loss to our families and to her friends and community. I look forward to rejoicing with her in heaven one day because I know she’ll be there…hugging and kissing and giving out those sweet compliments to those she loves. Many prayers and thoughts to Martha, Ronnie, and all the family at this time. I love you all so much, Joy

Martha and Ronnie–I am so, so sorry to hear about Ruth. Linda and I were just talking about her a few weeks ago, with such fond memories. All the times the whole family would get together at Beebe and Daddy Fred’s–the times Mother, Daddy, Linda and I would visit you—those are precious times I won’t forget.

And I won’t forget the very special bond that Mother and Ruth had. Mother loved Ruth to the ends of the earth. You truly had a very special mother, and I loved her very much.

I echo Susan’s remarks when I say that I will miss Aunt Ruth so much. All of us has so much fun and I have such happy memories of our visits. One of my fondest memories was Aunt Ruth saying “you’re just like me” to me. She told the best stories about everyday things that seemed to become an adventure, just in the telling.

Condolence from arlene wright on January 2nd, 2015 12:37 pm

Dear Martha, My prayers are with you in the home going of your mother. I will miss seeing you when I visit Laura at TL. I am so thankful I got to meet both of you. Looking forward with you to joyful reunions one glad day. With love & joy, Arlene Wright
