I have always loved Aunt June's quiet and gentle spirit. Her faith and trust in her Savior were solid...built upon the foundation of God's Word.
I believe it was out of that love for His Word that prompted her in November of 2017 to send to us--halfway around the world--an envelope that contained not only her support for our ministry, but also two cut-out pieces of encouragement.
One Bible verse (Rom 15:13) has continued to encourage me, now nearly two years later. When I first got it, I used a yellow highlighter to mark some words that the Holy Spirit seemed to highlight to me, but over time, because I kept the small piece of paper on top of my Bible that I read next to my bedroom window, the highlight faded in the strong indirect Malaysian sunlight, so I found myself highlighting it again....and again, each time soaking in fresh truths. (Eventually, to protect it, I placed it inside my open Bible that I covered with an old lace doily I'd brought from the States. :)
Then, as the truth and ongoing encouragement of the message sank further into my inner being, I had to do more, so I underlined certain words in green, and then it wasn't long before I was putting very meaningful words in red boxes (plus a smiley face) as a way of emphasizing the truth, hope, comfort, peace and joy of this verse even further--a special verse I cherished...and still do...from the hands and heart of our dear Aunt June. And then, at one point, I just had to add my "Yes and Amen" hallelujah in the margin!
Here's what has faithfully fed my soul on a regular basis:
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." -Rom 15:13
More than words...they have brought much LIFE to my soul. Thank you, Aunt June, for your loving encouragement to us; you ran a good race and finished well. We rejoice with you that you are now in the Presence of the One you have loved for so long.
Love, Barb & Nicky

When growing up as a kid in Columbus, Ohio, it was always exciting when Aunt June and Ed came to town to visit her sister Edith Baggs, my grandmother. They were always fun and funny and we'd have a great time during their visit!
And as a happy chunky little kid, I knew they would bring a bunch of pecans with them that Grandma Baggs (Edith) would turn into awesome pecan pies!! That was the other reason I loved seeing them. I know that's a bit selfish, but we're talking about pecan pies made from Georgia pecans!!
In 1987 my wife and a I and our three young children took a road trip of 15,100 miles, through the US, Canada, and Mexico, but I made certain one of our stops was in Macon!! That's when I discovered Aunt June and I both have a fondness for hot sauce!
We had a great time with Aunt June, Ed, Bruce and Angie.
While there, I bought a fifty pound bag of Vidalia onions for our trip that the seller claimed were so sweet they could be eaten like an apple. I told Aunt June about my buy and she said I needed to be careful and sample them first because some folks have been putting Vidalia onion stickers on regular yellow onions. As we drove out of Macon, I peeled one down, and chomped into it like an apple. My eyes watered so badly I had to pull off the road and my mouth was on fire-- Aunt June was right! I should have sampled them first!!
My wife and I are now serving the Lord in Malaysia and over the last few years one of my great joys, when the Malaysian internet was working, was to periodically call Aunt June and talk with her and John and Anne.
We loved Aunt June and she loved Jesus!! And now she is with her Lord!!
My wife Barb and I over the years have been so blessed by Aunt June! We will miss her, but will see her again when our days end and we enter His kingdom for our homecoming. I've got some good stories for Aunt June and can't wait to tell her!!
Our prayers are with the family. Love, Nick, Barb, Holly, Heather, Christian & Brittany

June was a lady I shared many confidences with when I lived on Sardis Church Road. I would walk in the afternoon and stop by her house and visit. She was a wonderful listener and gave good advice. She was one of the first to offer her help when my then husband was sick. Those memories will linger with me forever. She was a wonderful lady and I loved her so much.
I am so sorry you all have lost her. No more pain or sorrow. She is with her Lord and Savior. She is home.
