Grady and Tori and Family: I was so sorry to learn about Marjorie and am sorry that I missed the Oak Ridger Friday.If I can be of any help to you or Tori,please feel free to call me or if you just want to talk. We have one thing to be thankful for on her behalf: (Rev 21:4 NKJV) "And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away." (Rev 21:5 NKJV) Then He who sat on the throne said, "Behold, I make all things new." And He said to me, "Write, for these words are true and faithful." (Rev 22:1 NKJV) And he showed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding from the throne of God and of the Lamb. (Rev 22:2 NKJV) In the middle of its street, and on either side of the river, was the tree of life, which bore twelve fruits, each tree yielding its fruit every month. The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Rev 22:3 NKJV) And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. (Rev 22:4 NKJV) They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. (Rev 22:5 NKJV) There shall be no night there: They need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives them light. And they shall reign forever and ever. (Rev 22:6 NKJV) Then he said to me, "These words are faithful and true." And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place. (Rev 22:7 NKJV) "Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book." Jan 14, 2013

What a joy Marj was. She was a natural at making you feel at home and loved. I surely will be praying for peace for your family as I know (all too well) how hard it is to miss someone that you love dearly. I know that some peace must come from knowing she isn't suffering but is running on streets of gold. We love ya! Jan 12, 2013

Dear Family, I am so sorry for you loss. I realize that I haven't seen Margie often in these later years, but I have so many fond memories of spending time at Uncle Tommy's and Aunt Lucille's with all the family. I can forever hear the sound of her playing the piano. She has always had such a sweet spirit about her. I pray God blesses you with comfort and joy in knowing that she is now in the Arms of her Lord and Saviour. Jan 11, 2013

Teresa and Family: It's one of the hardest things to do when we say goodbye to a parent. You can be rest assured that your mom lived a life where she counted the Lord Jesus as her Savior. That's a promise of homecoming for us when we also leave this world. I wanted you to know that my thoughts and prayers will be with you during this time of grieving. A friend told me when dad died, "You haven't lost him, you know where he is." I pass those words on to you. Jan 10, 2013
