Condolence & Memory Journal


I was sorry to hear of Mary's death. I'll always remember growing up next door to you and Mary. We were mean little kids but you and Mary alway keep us grounded, and she always kept my hair looking so nice. I remember that she fixed my hair the day I got married....we slipped off and got married but I had to tell Mary about it...she was so excited she could barely finish my hair.
I will never forget the times she talked about the Bible with me.
May God be with you David at this time.

Life Stories

Dear David: Our sincere condolences to you on the death of your beloved wife, Mary. Dean and I have wonderful memories of the seven months we were your neighbors on Lee Road in Clyde. We would come home after working long hours on our home we were building and there would be a knock at the door. It was Mary with a delicious meal. It happened often, and the meals were wonderful. We enjoyed our driving trip with you and Mary to see where you grew up, and meet Mary's sister, Audrey. Our visits with you and Mary in Clyde, and later Candler will always be remembered by us. Thank you for making "northerns" feel welcome here. Waynesville is now our home and we believe we made the right decision to move to this great area. Blessings to you David, and may God bring you comfort during this sad time for you and your extended family.
