I offer my condolences to the family. You have a lot of to be thankful for. You were blessed with lots of memories and special stories from your love one.
My heart is saddened to learn of the loss of your precious Big Mama. May each of you find comfort in the wonderful memories and love that you hold close in your hearts. My prayer is that God wraps His loving arms around you and gives you peace that only He can give. "Blessed are they that mourn; for they shall be comforted." Matthew 5:4
To the family of Odella Nickleberry. Words can't express the sympathy I have for your lost. I would just like to say to your family to take Jesus as your Savior and face this world with a smile. You can smile with Jesus when you can't say a word. You can smile with Jesus when your voice can not be heard, you can smile with Jesus when it's cloudy or fair. You can smile with Jesus any time and any where. Weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning….Bless the entire family is my continued prayer. Helen McGary McCoy &Family
