Not sure what to say?

My heartfelt sympathy goes out to the family of Mr. Maurice Eugene Britt during this most difficult time. I pray that Gods caring and comforting presence will be bestowed upon you and may his presence help ease the pain of your loss.

Enjoyed talking to Mr Britt and listening to his stories. He is and always will be missed.

It was an honor to know Mr. Britt. My family and I will greatly miss him. He was a kind and charismatic gentleman. Praying for this family for now and all the days to come.

He will be missed. I meet him and Mrs. Shirley when I was a teenager. They were the sweetest and loving couple I have ever met. I loved them both very much and miss them too.

Mr Britt and my mom Rose Graham were in the facility together..i remember the first time i meet him, i said how are you today Mr Britt replied if i get any better im going to the was a precious soul..

I didn’t know your father personally Belinda, but I’ve grown to know his smile on Facebook as you posted some wonderful pictures especially during the last year that he always presented the biggest warmest smile. Prayers for you and your family in the coming days

Remember Maurice and Mrs. Shirley as fun loving folks. My condolences to his family upon his passing. Believe he left Lumberton a better place than he found it. Will think of him and Mrs. Shirley every time I travel down Roberts Ave. God bless each and every family member as He leads you through one of life's most difficult circumstances. Prayers being sent up for the entire family.
