Harold, just wanted to tell you how much JC and I liked Marilyn back in the days of Jonesboro Church of Christ. What a gracious and kind hearted person she was. I speak from experience that loosing a spouse is hard but the Lord can help you if you just trust in him. I lost my husband 5 years ago. Just be thankful for the many memories you shared with them. Be at peace and trust in our Lord And Savior.

I’m so sorry for your loss. I remember your mom from the power board. So sweet Telena I believe we went to school together. I’m thinking it was Townes acres. I’ll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers

Marilyn was one of my first bible class teachers. She got on me from time to time; no doubt I needed it. I'll always remember her faithful example as a wife, mother, and servant of Christ. May God help us to live faithfully as she did. Harold, Telena, and Grant - we love you and will be praying you'll be blessed with strength.
