I was so sorry to hear of Julieanne’s passing. Her and Jack always made me so welcome when I visited SC from England. They were the most gentile, gracious, kind and classy couple I can imagine. They combined timeless traditions with a bright optimism for the future. They were truly the very best example of a lady and gentleman of the grand old south. God bless and thank you.

Just a note to say how much we, at Still Hopes, loved having Mrs. Moak as a part of our resident family. Her daughters showed the kind of diligence and concern that clearly shows their dedication and love for their Mother. So many of our staff have touched, and been touched by, the life of Mrs. Moak. On behalf of the Still Hopes family let me wish the family peace in the days ahead and pledge our continuing support in whatever way the family needs or desires. Thank you so much for sharing your family with us. It has been our pleasure to serve you all.
