Memories Timeline


  1. Pepper,
    I am so sorry for your loss. My heart, thoughts, and prayers are with you and your family.
    Love you,
    Mrs. K

  2. Rest high on your mountain Mary, your work here is done…Your sweet voice is singing in Glory now! Sincere prayers of comfort and peace for your family.

  3. Im going to miss you so much Aunt Mary. No matter what was going on in life at the time you were always able to make me smile and laugh. You will be missed by everyone that really knew you. Give Grandma and Grandpa and Uncle Sam a huge hug for me. I'll see you again one day but until then you are in my heart always. Serena

  4. Carl, my prayers are with you and the rest of the family. God has given us the gift of memories, remember the good things and times with her and you will find yourself chucling to yourself and no one else will know what your thinking. Mary and I use to talk often on the phone and she even taught me how to cut up a chicken while on the phone. Welaughed forever over that. Love ya and sweet memories.

  5. Hardist thing to do in your life is to remove the one person that you have been though everything in your life and their's too with . It like take out a shoebox and cutting out half of your heart and half your memories and half your smiles and tears , good times and bad sick times and fun times , and raising each other's kids and being there through broken hearts and memories of things all we know about and putting it all in that little tiny box and knowing I'll never get it back again and having to dig a hole and bury it and say goodbye walk away and never get to see it again or hear it's sweet loving voice sing to you. It's the worst feeling in the world and I can't believe that this day is here . But I'm still so happy inside at the same time because now you will never call me up crying because you are getting bullied by someone, or you are hurting, and you can't stop the pain, or from someone else not doing you right and me having to put some act right in their life, and I have to make them have a real bad day ! Because I have never been the one to ever let everyone hurt you and now I know that no one else will ever hurt you ever again! Sweetheart God moved you in to his house and my job protecting you is over. You get to see Mom and Dad and goofe around with Sam till I get their. I love you for eternity and back, love Jessie.

  6. I knew Mary Ragsdale as a child growing up in Linden. She was always sweet and showed love and concern for everyone she came in contact with. I’m not surprised she became a nurse. I always wondered where she was. Now I know she is resting.
