I have so many wonderful memories of Your mother at West Oneonta Baptist Church during the years when my husband was the pastor there and also in recent years in our ladies’ Sunday School class. She was always so cheerful and upbeat! We have missed her in the last couple of years! Now she is with her Lord in Heaven! For her that is wonderful! But we know that your hearts are sad. May her Saviour comfort your hearts and bring you peace.

I have so many wonderful memories of your mother at West Oneonta Baptist Church during the years that my husband was pastor there and up till recently in our ladies’ Sunday School class. She was always so cheerful and upbeat! We have missed her in these past couple of years! Now she is with the Lord Jesus whom she loved! I will be praying that God will comfort your hearts.

To all of the Graves family, Bob and I want to express deepest sympathy at the death of Bev. I have many fond memories of her graciousness, kindness and laughter. I will never forget what fun she had with everyone when she bough the "Sears Catalog" wallpaper and installed at their then new camp at the lake. I'm sure you all know how fond my parents were of her while they were alive.
May God bless each of you at this sad time. Annie and Bob
