Memories Timeline


  1. Candle 2My condolences to the family. Marie was one of the sweetest persons that I have know. She lived her faith and showed it every day. The angels are singing and Brother James welcomed her with open arms. May God’s hands wrap around you and hold you during this time.

  2. Prayers for Karen Miller and All The Family Today and the Days to Come.
    Marcia and Tommy Wardlow

  3. I was so sorry to learn just now about my friend’s passing. Marie was very special to me. We served as pink ladies together at the hospital and she came to my exercise classes. I loved to share jigsaw puzzles with her. She was kind and so good to everyone. I know how much she loved her Family.
