Met this wonderful lady when she came to church services with her daughter Rebecca. Such a kind and caring person. A great person of faith in Christ. A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. A mother understands what a child does not say. The patience of a mother might be likened to a tube of toothpaste - it's never quite all gone. A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.  May God be with her family. Keith Bowling Minister Stinnett Church of Christ

Rebecca and family, I learned through Bonnie that Lisa had seen that your lovingly mother had passed. I can't be with you during this sad time, but you know that I love you and you are in our thoughts and prayers. What a wonderful lady, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to so many who loved her. Even though, I don't think I ever met her, I still feel like I know her through the many stories you shared with me and the conversations which we had over the years. I know that she lived a Christian life and was a great influence on so many people of different ages. I will be in touch soon, Please remember that you are dear to me and I will lift you and yours up in my prayers. Love Your friend Rose Nell Wilson
