Nancy and Carolyn,
I'm so sorry to hear of your loss. As a child I always enjoyed when your family would come to visit. Aunt Doozie was always so full of fun and laughter and she had that mischievous twinkle in her eye. I know you will miss her. Take care and know that we are thinking of you.
Your cousin,
Nancy Beane Dellinger

Mrs. Webb was a very special and lovely woman. It was a privilege to know her and I will miss seeing her out in her yard as I walk my dog past her corner home. You, her family, are in my thoughts and prayers. Bless you all.

Mrs. Webb, was my "Special" friend. I will miss her , as we shared, wonderful moments together. We just talked and laughed together just about everything. She had my deepest respects as she was a living testament to her family and her deep love for Jesus Christ. Carolyn and Nancy were the "apple of her eyes" and her husband Ellis, the love of her life. She truly loved her family. I will miss her. GOD BLESS her and Ellis are together again forever. Mrs. Webb, was special to me.

Vivian was a very sweet and caring Christian lady. She was a scholar of the Bible to which those of us in her Sunday School class at Hilton Christian Church can attest. We will miss her and our thoughts and prayers are with her family.

Jesus Savior Pilot Me

Words by Edward Hopper, Music by John E. Gould,1871

 Jesus Savior, pilot me over life's tempestuous sea;
Unknown waves before me roll, hiding rock and treacherous shoal;
Chart and compass came from Thee; Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

As a mother stills her child, Thou canst hush the ocean wild;
Boisterous waves obey Thy will, when Thou say'st to them "Be still!"
Wondrous Sov'reign of the sea, Jesus, Savior, pilot me.

When at last I near the shore and the fearful breakers roar,
'Twixt me and the peaceful rest; then, while leaning on Thy breast,
May I hear Thee say to me, "Fear not, I will pilot thee."
