Aunt Mimi's Family
When my Mother passed I asked Aunt Mary to promise me she would see 90 at least. (I said to her that I preferred at least 100 but wanted her to keep her promise.) She laughed and said "Well, we will see!" She kept her promise! I am so blest to be Aunt Mary's niece. I do believe that God gave Aunt Mary a 'Beautiful Song' of warmth, kindness, gentleness and love that she shared with so many. She will always be in my heart. Honor her well.

With love

Charlie and Mary were so instrumental in our lives at ABBC...and to my salvation. Their love for Christ, love for others, and friendship was an inspiration to so many.

Sorry to hear the news of your passing, but know you are with Charley now and are happy and watching over the rest of us. I will never forget the time I was in KC and you and Charley showed me around the town and we visited with your family, thank you for that. RIP, you will always be loved and I will miss you.
