Please accept my deepest sympathy for the passing of your loved one. While you are grieving your loss; I hope you will find some comfort in Jesus’ promise to raise up those who are now sleeping in death(John 11:11)restoring them back to life, with the hope of eternal life, on the renewed Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that blessed promise is fulfilled, may Jehovah God grant you peace and comfort, now; during this time of sorrow.-Matthew 5:4.

Susan, I am sorry to learn of your Mother's passing. It's always very sad to lose loved ones (especially around the holidays), but it's particularly difficult when it's one's Mother! Our Mothers are our biggest fans--unconditionally. I still think of my beloved Mother every day; and in fact, my sisters and I celebrate her birthday every year--she loved her birthday 🙂 I do hope that all the wonderful memories you and your family have of your Mother will help heal the hurt in your hearts. With sincere sympathy, Katherine Lee

Susan and Tripp, I am so very sad that Marge has left us! I have so many fond memories of her! She was a great lady! She and your Dad always welcomed me in their home and I have many fond memories of going with your family to Wrightsville Beach during the summer, having sleepovers with Susan, seeing your Mom in her golf attire ready to play at Raleigh CC and standing in your kitchen on Redington Drive mixing her Martini! She will be missed!!
