Bobby n Debbie., I’ll always remember the MYF and Youth Beach Trips that your mom and dad always chaperoned. The smiles they both always had. We are so lucky to have had godly parents and a church family that was so close.
Peace and love.,
Heaven has another angel!!

Mary Sue was such a sweet person. She meant the world to us, along with her mom, dad & sister, Nadine. Mary Sue and I didnt get to visit as much after we moved to Nashville, but we stayed in touch. We got to visit at the last Belk Reunion. Sage and I love our family. Memories from our childhood will continue to live in our hearts. Prayers, Love and Peace to the family. Mary Sue is home with our Lord.

Mary Sue and I were first cousins. Her mother and my father were siblings. She was such a sweet person, and I am going to miss her terribly. I can't believe I've lost another family member. Prayers to her immediate family in their pain.

The beautiful Mrs. Mary Sue Mills actually made the nativity set that still adorns our home every Christmas. She treated my family like her own and we will miss her dearly. Sleep well Boss Lady.

Mary Sue & I were first cousins. Her mother Thetus and my mother Dora were sisters. We live in Virginia, so we only saw Mary Sue once a year at family reunions, but she was so sweet and loving, and we loved her, too. We know she is rejoicing in God’s presence today, and we pray for His comfort for all the family. 🕊
