    To the family of Ms.Mary I am so sorry for your loss. What a wonderful and dear lady Ms.Mary was. I grew up with her as one of my beloved Sunday School teachers. Ms.Mary is the reason why I am a Sunday School teacher today and have been for many years. I pray that I can bless the children that I have in my Sunday School as Ms.Mary blessed the lives of my brother Billy and I in her class so long ago. Even though I did not realize then Ms. Mary Hale will always be the lady I consider who brought our Lord Jesus into my life to live as my personal Savior. What a joyous celebration in heaven it must be to reward such a special lady for all her works for the Lord while on this earth.

    I am so sad to hear of Mary’s death, but I’m sure all of Heaven is rejoicing to have her home. Such a wonderful lady, she was truly a blessing to me and my family and I thank God for her life and the privilege of sharing a small part of it.

    Bud, I am so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. Saying goodbye is so hard.

    Many will say that time heals – it does not. We are always aware of the loss of someone we loved. But time does allow us to remember, with a smile, the many things that made the people we love so very special to us.

    I know this has certainly been a very difficult season for both you and Dawn, and just I want you to know that my heart and prayers are with you both during this time of grief.

    with love,

    Dear Bud, I am so sorry to learn of your Mother’s passing. I know that your loss is deep. I lost Mother last year and even though her memory blesses me I miss her every day. God bless you and your family.
