Dear Deborah & Mike, I m not sure if you remember me (neighbor from Greenhill Drive). I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet mama. She was a beautiful lady inside and out. I have sweet memories of jumping rope on the sidewalk until I wore holes in my socks when you lived beside us. I lost my mama recently also. I miss her laugh. I miss how she loved me no matter what. There are so many times when I just want to talk to her. I pray for you both for strength and comfort in remembering all the sweet times. May God be close to you. May your mama always be as close as a sweet memory. Love, Debbie Bryant Tibbetts

Dear Shirley and family
I was so sorry to see that your mom had passed away in the Martinsville paper. I remember when she came to the Manor. I loved to stop in and talk to her and watch her paint. I have the painting you gave me in my home and think of her everytime I pass it. May you be comforted with your memories and may your mother RIP.

I remember the twinkle in her eye and the inquisitive expression she seemed to give often. She is blessed to have such a devoted family..

Nancy would give me and my dad Vernon Stone some of the sweetest smiles at the Manor. He loved to talk to her and hold her hand. We could tell she liked the attention. I visited her room a few times and was amazed at all her artwork. So much talent. I’m sorry for your loss. This has been a terrible year for loss among that group of residents and friends at the Manor. Let’s keep their memories alive and remember them with a smile.

Love, prayers, and sympathy for Debbie and all the family at the death of Nancy. She was a lovely lady in every sense of the word. She was so talented in so many ways and shared her love for art with others so well. I think she wanted others to love art as much as she did. Even with the challenges she faced in the last years of her life she continued to pursue her talent as well as she could. She did not give up as long as she could continue to try.
May she Rest In Peace and may God bless and comfort those who remain to share her legacy.
