I was so sorry too hear about the passing of Aunt Marie. She was always so kind to me and everyone she encountered. I have only memories of kindness and a giving nature whenever I was in her presence. She always had kind and understanding words for everyone, never judgment.
I am very grateful for the many kindnesses she and Uncle Alton showed my father, her brother Junior.
My thoughts are with Geraldine , Rose Marie and all her many extended family.
All the best,

Kelly Gray

To introduce myself to those who may not know me:

My birth name is Mark Lewis Eygabroad, and I’m Mary Alice Eygabroad’s youngest son (of 5 children), and Marie’s nephew. I legally changed my name to Marcas Brenden Sterling in May of 1994 for many reasons. “Colin” is a nickname that derived from another nickname I didn’t use- “Marcolino”, and “Marcolino” derived from my legal name Marcas.

Today, my Aunt Marie was laid to rest.

I hardly knew Aunt Marie as I may have met her at least 3 or more times. However, what I remember of her is she always had a joyful spirit, and had a loving soul like my mom (Mary).

It saddens me that she has passed and for all the relatives- cousins, aunts, and uncles that I was distant with all because I lived in another state and also moved away from the area, I still care for them and miss them.

All of you are still family and all of you are loved.

May peace, joy, and love be unto all of you with our Heavenly Father’s blessings for each and every one of you.

Colin

My fondest memory of Mrs Waldrop was the day I got to spend the night with Geraldine. She was my best friend in first grade and I was allowed to ride the school bus home with her. Mrs Waldrop opened up the bedroom door and told us girls to get up for breakfast. I can still smell that breakfast and see her sweet smile. She was so kind to me and made me feel special and right at home. I will always remember her.
God Bless her, she's with my aunt Irene now. Gone but will never be forgotten.
Rest in Peace.

My Mamaw Rie was one of the sweetest people I’ve ever known. She always had a smile on her face & joy in her heart. I can still hear her cute little laugh. And no one could make chicken & dumplings & red velvet cake like her! I know she’s so happy with my Papaw, My Daddy & Gene now. She has so missed them! I take comfort in knowing this is not the end, we will see you again someday. I will hold tight to my memories & smile every time I think of you. I love you, Mamaw Rie!❤️

I will always cherish you. I cherish the love you showed me, the times I was able to stand in the kitchen with you, heck; just walking on the back porch and smelling food is a cherished memory. Thank you for showing me Christ through your actions, I adore the memory of going to church with you and still remember going with you like it was yesterday. I also loved the non TV night the preachers were hosted at dad and Geri’s. Robby was so afraid to turn the TV on. If I remember correctly, the piano was used to play hymns out of the hymnal in the bench. What a beautiful night. Thank you for sitting on your porch with me. I loved stringing and snapping beans because it equaled time together. I could go on and on about how much I loved every single minute of being around you. I love you ❤️
