Not sure what to say?

Dave, so sorry to hear of your mothers passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

We are sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Earth's loss is Heaven's gain. Please know our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.

David and Carolyn,
I just learned of your mom's passing and am so sorry for your loss. It is tough to lose your parents but at least she did live a long life so you got to love her a long time.

Thinking of you,

Mae Belle was my great-aunt and she truly was "great" in every sense of the word. She made mine and my two sisters Christmas, special every year by buying us brand new p.j.'s and wrapping them up. Mom would let us open only one gift on Christmas Eve and it was always the wonderful p.j.'s from Aunt Mae. We couldn't wait! It made Christmas even more special to be able to go to bed in brand new jammies and then get up early on Christmas morning wearing something new and beautiful. ...

Wayne,Our prayers are with you and your family.May all of you be comforted in knowing that she is
at peace and with her Lord.

Maebelle was such a special person and a wonderful friend to mom. Growing up near you and your family will always have special memories for me. She was a wonderful lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I met Mae years ago when she came to Raleigh to visit Wayne and Rita. We had common interests of African Violets and quilting. She was a lovely woman - gracious and so easy and interesting to talk to.

David and family,
I'm saddened to hear of your mom's passing. I remember her and your dad so well growing up in Glenvar. I loved going to their store. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Always remember the good times and great memories.

David, Carolyn and Family,
Thinking of you all at this time.My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
What a blessing to have had your Mom for so many years. She is in such a special place now, may she rest in peace.
