  1. May God bless all of your family as he makes a special place for your Mom by his side to watch over you all! Who knows maybe my Dad will run into her and she can join the party going on up there!

  2. Much love and prayers at this tough time. I remember your mom so well. Always sweet and positive and there for you both.

  3. Peace

    You are at peace and as heaven opened their gates, they knew how beautiful you are and knew you were ready to reunite
    With you’re loved ones!

    God Bless,
    Karen & Family

  4. May you have peace and comfort knowing she is pain free and whole again. I enjoyed getting to know her in her final months. She was so witty and always made me laugh! What a legacy she left your families.

  5. Please accept my deepest condolences for the loss of your loved one. God loves and cares for all of us and, we are precious to him. In his word the Bible, is the wonderful hope for our loved ones sleeping in death. Please see the details of that hope at John 5:28,29.

  6. Teresa Lewis

    Written by: Donna McMurry

    My aunt TJ left a beautiful legacy of mercy, generosity, and love that will live on through her family, friends, and so many others she influenced through her life. I was blessed to call her Aunt and continue to be through Karen and Diane. Miles separate us now but one day we will all celebrate eternal life generously and freely given to us by our Savior, JESUS CHRIST. Then all tears will be wiped away. We are keeping your family in our prayers as you walk through these difficult days. Love you, Donna and Tom

  7. Thinking of you

    Written by: Nancy Jackson

    Karen, you were a faithful daughter. Thinking of you and sending hugs. God bless all of you.

  8. My dear sister, Teresa, rest in peace. Enjoy now being with all your beloved who have gone before you. I have so many memories of our life together that you will forever be alive in my heart. You were blessed with a beautiful family who gave you tender loving care during your six month journey through hospice. For this, I love them all so very much. . . . . your sister, Jeannie

  9. My prayers are with your family during this difficult period. Take comfort in Jesus’ words at John 5:28, 29, “The time is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”
