•When we lose someone we love, it seems that time stands still.
•What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch, we may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
•Please accept my heartfelt sympathy on the passing of your loved one. my thoughts and prayers will be with all of you, love you all Darlene

Keeping you and your family in our thoughts and prayers.

Rita & family,
He would try to charge me for the air for my bicycle tires. He was like a father to me. He always knew when I needed prayer. He also helped me with my walk with the Lord. He had many nicknames for me. We will someday see him again. He will be missed. Like he would say, "See you by & by". Love & Prayers,
~ Robert O. Eversole III, Newport News, Virginia

Amazing grace! (how sweet
That sav'd a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
Was blind, but now I see.
'Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
And grace my fears reliev'd;
How precious did that grace appear,
The hour I first believ'd!
Thro' many dangers, toils and snares,
I have already come;
'Tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
And grace will lead me home.
The Lord has promis'd good to me,
His word my hope secures;
He will my shield and portion be,
As long as life endures.
Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
And mortal life shall cease;
I shall possess, within the veil,
A life of joy and peace.
The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
The sun forbear to shine;
But God, who call'd me here below,
Will be forever mine.
