    Enjoyed my time with her as a child. It’s her time to walk with the Lord. Prayers and Love to all her family. Norma and Harvey Richardson
  2. Edith Faye Matheny Mc Lendon says:
    So sorry to hear of Aunt Don’s passing. Can remember all the great times I had as a child especially when school was out and I got to spend summer months visiting her and family. She was a wonderful person and great mother. She never said a bad word against anyone and one of the best cooks in the country. You were always welcomed at her home. I know her family will greatly miss her but her time to go to heaven was ready and she will be greatly missed. Love and my prayers to all of her kids and family members
  3. Elaine says:
    My deepest condolences to the family. I know Ms. Maggie will be deeply missed. May you find comfort in the precious memories you’ve shared. And may these promises found in God’s Word bring you peace: “I am the resurrection and the life. He that exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” and “He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord will wipe the tears from all faces.” (John 11:25; Isaiah 25:8; Matthew 6:9,10; 1 Corinthians 15:26; Revelation 21:3,4). Heartfelt prayers are with you.
