Condolence & Memory Journal

It's 2018 and I just watched the old "living doll" Twilight Zone episode with my little granddaughter. She loved it ..just as I loved watching the rerun when I was 7 years old. My granddaughter was amazed when I explained that the talented person behind Talky Tina's voice also did the voices of so many of her favorite cartoon characters. I'm so thankful June Foray used her God given talents to such a tremendous extent that...because she made so much of her time on Earth...future generations will continue to smile and laugh and grow with characters that touch our lives endlessly. I hope Christ's promise of love, forgiveness and salvation comforts all of those who were blessed enough to know this lovely woman personally

Here's hoping a new generation will appreciate both Rocky the flying squirrel and your God-given voice-work!

Our condolences to the Foray family and friends. She was literally a part of our childhood...for 3 generations. I didn't realize she was also the voice of my dolls! She deserves every award that exists. We will all miss her very much. Even though she was here for almost 100 years, she is still gone much too soon. We look forward to seeing and hearing her again someday. May God be with you. (Philippians 4:13)
