May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

Uncle Raymond, Von, Auntie, and Cousin Thelma, you will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

Mr. Wade, it has been a joy having you and Mrs. Wade in our lives, for the short time we've known you. We are truly convinced that God brought us together for a reason. Mrs. Wade was a fun individual, and true christian (these things were very evident). She will be missed by many. Keep your hands in God's hand, and he will always be with you. I look forward to seeing you on our next RV excursion. Love you much!! Lorenzo and Cherry Alexander.

May God bless and comfort you at this time and for always.

With deepest sympathy from Dea & Mrs. Jesse Sharpe & Family.

Cuz, we will all miss Zelma, who was a real trooper. The 2 of you were always there for mother, daddy and Frank. I am glad we are family. "There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, Things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go." Author unknown. Be strong.

Uncle Raymond,
My prayers are with you and your family at this time of bereavement. May God continue to keep you and bless you.
