Kenny I am so sorry about your mother Kenny I had to wait a few days to be able to say something because I was kind of in shock I love you mother dearly and I think she also loved me she was like a second mother to me because every time I came up to her house she was always smiles and soft-spoken and you could tell she loved her family. 0Again I'm very sorry for your loss I know she is in heaven with Jesus looking down on all our families and chatting with my mother and daddy. again I hope you get along okay and if you get to feeling better and you want to call please do so again I am very sorry

I was shocked to see that Mrs. Medlock had passed. I knew her as a soft spoken sweet lady. Never heard her voice raised, always kind and loving. She loved her family with a love that I could tell was GENUINE ❤️. I so admired that. To be honest, until I saw her obituary I did not even know that her first name was Mary....I knew her as
Ms. Medlock, my best friends mom. (Actually mother n law).
But she was the Real Deal...just like JESUS' mother... MARY! Always Loving her children and all their children ❤️ and extending that kindness even to me.
And I could see and feel the Love in her sweet soft spoken voice.
Rest in peace Ms. Medlock and enjoy heaven until I see you again
Sweet Lady❣️

I am going to miss stopping by and visiting with Mary Louise on my trips south each year. Am very thankful that we were able to visit on my way down and back from Florida this past summer. We had a wonderful time reminiscing about special times in our lives.
She was a beautiful, loving and caring Aunt and I will miss her very much.
Mary Louise always remembered that Mary loved the chocolate roll cake that she would make for us when we visited her at her house.
Am glad to hear that she did not suffer these past few weeks.
Looking forward to the day when we will all be together again.
Love you very much-"SUGGA". Jerry

You were my mother-in-law but I felt so close to you, I called you
Mom. The very first time I met you, before Kenny and I married, you treated me as a member of your family. My Romanian accent gave you a challenge but over our 26 years we shared together, we would laugh and enjoy our conversations. I will never forget you and will hold you dear to my heart. You gave me so much helpfulness when Kenny and I married; time together with vacations (San Antonio riverboat dinner, Charleston horse and buggy rides, Arizona sites, train rides, Atlanta Centennial and much more). I will always remember your delicious cooking and baking, especially your Red Velvet cake. We bonded as mom and daughter and I will never forget as we would say goodbye over the phone: you would say “love you and bye for now”. God rest your soul.
Love you mom and bye for now. Rodica Medlock

Louise (grandma to many of us) will truly be missed. She had unconditional love for her ever-growing family and was the kindest soul you would ever meet. What I remember about her that I want to share is how easily she accepted you into her family and made sure you felt like family no matter who you were or where you came from. If someone cared for you in our family, she made sure to love you too. Thank you for taking care of me when I was younger and for the love and acceptance you gave me. You are truly special and will be missed by so many.

You were the most wonderful momma a son could have. You gave me guidance, friendship, support, respect, honesty and above all, you gave me the teaching of Jesus Christ. You gave me hugs when I felt defeated, you gave me direction when I felt lost, you gave me explanations when I felt confused and you gave me love when I felt alone. We talked on the telephone every day for over 27 years after daddy passed and how much I enjoyed those conversations. Momma, I love you so much and will greatly miss you. Out of love for you, I found myself reaching for the telephone today to talk to you, only to remember that you are now with Christ. I will honor your spirit until the day I join you in everlasting life. Love you forever, your first born, Kenny

She was always very sweet to me! I lived across the street from her & everytime I was selling anything for school or church, she would buy something. We would sit and talk, while eating sugar cookies!
