I will remember her sweet face and her (always) concern for my well being. God blessed my life with her friendship. She brought joy with her presence.

Many memories come back to us from our life in Memphis: those of working with your mother while Ralph was going for his MDiv and I was in the Business Office. Then we shared times in fellowship while being in the same Life Group. We were always amazed at her stamina and energy especially exhibited after the Administration building burned and she used her talents to get the facility back in workable order. That doesn't minimize her organizing the interim working area. My PHT degree started with much of her influence. Our sympathy goes out to all of your families; I wish we were closer so we could hug each of you. Her legacy lives on!

She was my mother Erselle's baby sister and was much loved and respected by all of our family. I am aware that growing up with her influence in my life contributed to the person I became. She always had time to listen; she always set a good example for us, she always made me feel special. I loved her and will miss her. She was a good Christian woman, a loving aunt and a wonderful role model.

Cecil - My memories of your Mother go back to a time prior to your birth. I well remember as a child sitting in one of the Bible Classes she taught. Not only did I learn a lot of Bible, I had to sit still and only speak when she spoke to me, disciplines that have served me well over the years.

During the years you were in the youth group at church, your Mother was very concerned that too much foolishness was allowed to go on both in classes and activities. However, seeing how well you have turned out, her parenting skills obviously overcame our youthful inexperience.

Our hearts share your pain of loss of your Mother, but also share the joy that comes when a loved one goes home to our Heavenly Father.
