Memories Timeline


  1. To the family of Mrs. Wise,
    I send my sincere sympathies on your loss. Mrs. Wise was my patient for many years until my retirement last summer. She was a lovely woman. I was very sad to see her obituary in the paper. I’m sure she will be deeply missed.

  2. The loss of any friend leaves a big hole in the heart
    Rennie was certainly a friend to all who knew her
    After the tears have dried and the goodbyes have been said, all we have is happy memories that we’ve shared with our loved ones.Prayers and fond memories are what we have to remember our dearly departed. May the love of family and friends comfort you during these difficult days, our most heartfelt condolence
    Words may not suffice to express the heartfelt sorrow that I feel for the passing of your mother. Please accept my condolences.

  3. “Please accept my sympathy at this time, losing a loved one is difficult to bear. May peace from God in the form of hope be your comfort, hope in His righteous will to end sickness, and pain, to even resurrect those now sleeping in death. (Revelation 21:4, 1 Thessalonians 4:14, Acts 24:15). May God give you the strength to bear in the days ahead, for with Him all things are possible.”

  4. Oh my, Amy. I am so sorry and heartsick for you and your family. What a wonderful Mom and friend you had. I remember many wonderful stories you shared as you were growing up and spent time with us. How special that you were able to travel about so much thanks to your dear Mom. She will never truly leave you and will still be there to help you in many ways that will touch your heart. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with all of you. In life we never get over these losses but only get through them. Love and hugs to all of you.
