Message by Your Sister, Gilda

It has been almost a year since you have passed. I still think of you a lot, especially when certain things go on around me. I miss working in the garden with you, and the little things we would say. I miss all the laughs we had and of course when you would tell Ron, "Won't you be quiet, Ronnie".
There is so much to say I just can't write them all, but I do know you hear them in my prayers. Things just are not the same. I miss you and love you. Your sister Gilda.


Message by Your Niece, Tonya

Vicki, 2 months have passed since your death; it has taken me until now to say something. I have seen people pass whether it was grandparents or friends, but the passing of you has put more thought in my mind than anyone else. You were not only an aunt, but you were a friend. I spent a lot of my childhood at your house, and I have so many memories. I miss you when I go over to the house, and you would be so surprised at Ron; it does not even seem like him. Donna is fine and so are the grandkids. We all miss you, Vicki. It's not the same, but we will meet again and you are no longer suffering, You were a fighter and you won in the long run, for now you are with family again in Heaven. Until I see you again.

Love, Tonya


Message by YOUR SISTER, FAYE

Vicki,
I KNOW I DID NOT GET TO SAY ALL THERE WAS TO SAY, BUT I KNOW YOU KNOW HOW I HAVE FELT. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A VOID IN MY LIFE NOW THAT YOU ARE GONE.
IT HIT ME ALL AT ONCE. HOW AM I NEVER GOING TO BE AROUND YOU AND LAUGH WITH YOU EVER AGAIN. VICKI, YOU WERE MORE THAN MY SISTER; YOU WERE MY BEST FRIEND. IT SEEMS SO UNREAL THAT YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE AROUND ANYMORE. BEFORE, YOU WERE JUST A PHONE CALL AWAY. NOW ALL I HAVE TO DO IS TALK TO YOU AND YOU WILL HEAR ME, BUT THE BAD THING IS... I CANNOT HEAR YOU. IT WILL BE HARD THE NEXT FEW MONTHS TO COPE WITH WHAT HAS HAPPENED, BUT I WILL DEAL WITH IT THE BEST I CAN. I KNOW A LOT OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WILL MISS YOU VERY MUCH. I AM GLAD THAT I GREW UP KNOWING YOU. I AM A BETTER PERSON BECAUSE OF IT.

LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!!!

YOUR SISTER FAYE


Message by Michael Beard

Granny, I just wanted to say that I love you with all my heart, and that I will never forget you, no matter what happens in life. A lot of people will miss you, but we know that you are not in any more pain, and that you are in a better place than anyone. I'll see you later.  For now, love ya.

love ya always, your loving grandson, Michael Beard


Message by your loving granddaughter, Marissa

Granny, I'll miss talking to you on the phone every night. You would always tell me I love you and and no matter what happens you would be there for me. I don't know how to say this, but I love you very very much, and I will treasure all your memories forever and ever until I see you again one day. Sometime without actually seeing you, it doesn't feel like you're there, but you are. Before you went into the hospital, we talked on the phone for almost an hour. I'll remember that phone talk. We always said our prayers together even though you're in heaven now peacefully, I still say my prayers even though you're not exactly on the phone. I can't stand talking to you and your not replying back. I may take it hard, but thankfully I'm old enough to understand. We all love you very very much, but we know you wanted to be at peace and go to heaven, so we let you. I remember sleeping and holding on to you the whole night before you passed away. Carl, Me, Papa, and Mommy were by your side when you opened your eyes and said I love you and took your last breath. I'll miss your big hugs and wet kisses and warm smiles. I love you very, very, very much forever.

Your granddaughter that loves you very, very much forever and ever! LOVE U
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO
HUGS AND KISSES


Message by YOUR LOVING DAUGHTER, DONNA WARREN BEARD

DEAR MOM,
ON MAY 26, 2005 AT 12:01 P.M., I NOT ONLY LOST MY MOTHER I ALSO LOST MY BEST FRIEND. YOU WERE ONLY A PHONE CALL AWAY OR A DRIVE IN MY CAR TO SEE YOU. YOU WERE ALWAYS THERE WHEN I NEEDED YOU, AND ALWAYS GAVE ME THE RIGHT ADVICE ON WHAT TO DO. WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL, I REMEMBER YOUR SINGING SONGS TO ME LIKE "HUSH LITTLE BABY" AND "JESUS LOVES ME" AND A LOT OF OTHER SONGS THAT I WILL MISS. WHILE YOU WERE SINGING TO ME, YOU WOULD ALWAYS RUB YOUR FINGERS THROUGH MY HAIR OR ROCK ME IN THE ROCKING CHAIR. WHEN I GOT HURT OR SICK, YOU WOULD KISS MY PAIN AWAY AND STAY BY MY SIDE WHEN I WAS SICK WITH A FEVER AND TAKE CARE OF ME. THERE WAS NOT A DAY OR NIGHT THAT WENT BY THAT YOUR LOVELY KISSES TOUCHED MY CHEEKS OR LIPS AND YOUR ARMS TIGHTLY WRAPPED AROUND MY NECK HUGGING ME. YOU STUCK BY MY SIDE THROUGH GOOD AND BAD. THERE WAS NOT A NIGHT THAT WENT BY WHEN I LEFT HOME THAT YOU WOULD CALL ME JUST TO TELL ME "YOU LOVE ME". YOU WERE THERE WHEN I HAD MARISSA AND YOU WERE SO HAPPY TO BE A GRANDMOTHER. YOU ALWAYS TOLD ME WHAT WAS BEST FOR MY DAUGHTER. YOU TOLD ME WHAT TO DO WHEN SHE WAS SICK. YOU HELPED ME IN EVERY WAY POSSIBLE. THEN 12 YEARS LATER I GAVE BIRTH TO YOUR GRANDSON "NEIL RONALD BEARD" IN WHICH GOD ABOVE ANSWERED MY PRAYER THAT YOU WOULD GET TO HOLD HIM IN YOUR ARMS AND GIVE NEIL YOUR BUTTERFLY KISSES. YOU WOULD CALL ON THE PHONE EVERYDAY AFTER NEIL WAS BORN AND YOU WOULD TELL ME TO PUT THE PHONE UP TO HIS EAR SO YOU COULD TELL HIM THAT GRAN-GRAN LOVES YOU AND YOU COULD NOT WAIT TO SEE HIM. YOU HAVE FOUGHT SO HARD IN YOUR LIFE, MOM. YOU FOUGHT TO BE HERE WITH YOUR FAMILY EVEN THOUGH YOU WERE VERY SICK. IT TOOK ME AND DAD TO TELL YOU IT WAS OKAY TO GO HOME TO THE LORD, BECAUSE WE KNEW YOU WERE TIRED. THAT WAS THE HARDEST DAY OF MY LIFE TO LET YOU GO, MOM. I WAS THERE WHEN YOU TOOK YOUR LAST BREATH, HOLDING YOUR HAND TELLING YOU TO GO TO THE LIGHT. DO NOT FIGHT ANYMORE. GO HOME TO THE LORD IN HEAVEN; HE IS WAITING FOR YOU. BEFORE YOUR LAST BREATH YOU OPENED YOUR BEAUTIFUL EYES AND LOOKED RIGHT INTO MY EYES AND I KNOW YOU SAID, "I LOVE YOU" AND THEN YOU WENT HOME TO HEAVEN. I WAS HEARTBROKEN THAT I LOST MY MOM AND MY BEST FRIEND BUT I KNEW YOU HAVE SUFFERED SO LONG BEING SICK, AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN SELFISH OF ME IF I DID NOT LET YOU GO. YOU WERE A LOVING MOTHER, WIFE, AND GRANDMOTHER. YOU WERE THE BEST. MOM, YOU WILL BE GREATLY MISSED BY YOUR DAUGHTER AND THERE WILL NOT BE A DAY THAT GOES BY THAT I WILL NOT MISS YOU AND WILL BE THINKING OF YOU. "I KNOW YOU ARE WATCHING OVER ME, MOM". ONE DAY WE WILL MEET AGAIN IN THE GATES OF HEAVEN. YOU WILL BE WAITING FOR ME TO GIVE ME A GREAT BIG KISS AND A HUG. I LOVE YOU, MOM. NOBODY COULD EVER TAKE YOUR PLACE. EVERYDAY I LOOK AT THE TELEPHONE WHEN IT RINGS, WISHING IT WOULD BE YOUR VOICE TELLING ME, "I LOVE YOU, DONNA". YOU WILL BE IN MY HEART AND DREAMS ALWAYS AND FOREVER MOM.
REST IN PEACE MOM.

LOVE YOUR DAUGHTER,
DONNA WARREN BEARD
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO


Message by NANCY HAYES NOBLES

RON, I AM SO SORRY FOR THE FAMILY'S LOSS OF A WONDERFUL LOVE ONE. VICKI WAS A DEAR FRIEND TO ME, AND I LOVED HER. WHEN SHE WOULD COME TO VISIT AUNT HAZEL, SHE WOULD CALL ME AND SAY, "COME ON OVER; FAYE AND I ARE DOWN." I KNOW SHE WILL BE MISSED, BUT JUST THINK, ONE DAY WE WILL BE ABLE TO SEE HER AGAIN. HAZEL SAID SHE WAS LONGING FOR HOME; NOW SHE IS AT PEACE, NO MORE PAIN. RON, JUST TRUST IN GOD BECAUSE HE IS THERE FOR YOU. MAY GOD EVER BLESS YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

Message by George and Celine

Mom, we know that you are in a better place now, but our pain lets us know that we are going to miss your smile, your strength, and knowing that you were just a short drive, or phone call away. You were the soul of our family, and the love we got from you can never be replaced. Sure, our lives will go on but, there will not be a day that goes by that we will not think of how hard your tired body fought to stay with us, and how truly blessed we were to have just known you but even more to be your kids. We Love You Mom!
 

   Our sincerest condolences are extended to the Fulmore and Prevatte families and their friends.

He Leadeth Me

Words by Joseph H. Gilmore, 1861

Music by William B. Bradbury 
 

He leadeth me, O blessed thought,
O words with heavenly comfort fraught!
Whate'er I do, where'er I be,
Still 'tis God's hand that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
By His own hand He leadeth me!
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

Sometimes 'mid scenes of deepest gloom,
Sometimes where Eden's bowers bloom,
By waters still, o'er troubled sea,
Still 'tis His hand that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
By His own hand He leadeth me!
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

Lord, I would clasp Thy hand in mine,
Nor ever murmur or repine,
Content with whatever lot I see,
Since 'tis my God that leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
By His own hand He leadeth me!
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.

And when my task on earth is done,
When, by Thy grace the vic'try's won,
E'en death's cold wave I will not flee,
Since God through Jordan leadeth me.

He leadeth me, He leadeth me!
By His own hand He leadeth me!
His faithful follower I would be,
For by His hand He leadeth me.
