Wilma and Albert were married 76 years and they both said they never had a serious argument. They were sweethearts at a very young age and they found their greatest joy just being together.

Mrs. Nabors was always joyful as I remember, knowing her through Sandy since we were teens. She welcomed me into her home as if I belonged there. My condolences to her family as I know she is missed, but what a happy life!

‘Tod’ was a sweet influence and always pleasant. We enjoyed getting to see her and ‘Peachy’ whenever she visited my mother, Judy.
We love all of you very much.

Dear Sandy, Harry & family,
It’s so hard when you lose someone as precious as your Mom, and although I don’t know her, knowing you Sandy, I can only imagine what an incredible woman she was. Know that you are not alone as y’all grieve your loss. We are with you, praying, and lifting you up to our Lord. Your mom is in an incredible place, no pain, all joy, as our Lord promised us. Take solace in that, and know that you will be reunited again in the future!
Blessings,
Pastor Norm

Sandy and Family,
I am sorry to hear about your sweet mother. Your mom and dad and my mom and dad had some great times together. She always had a smile and a hug for me. I pray that your family will find peace and comfort in Jesus Christ knowing she is safe in His arms.
