  1. 2Cor. 1:3 and 4 Praised be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials so that we may be able to comfort others in any sort of trial with the comfort that we receive from God.
    Sleep well mom you deserve it. Until we meet again I love you!!

  2. Losing your mother is one of the hardest things to do. Just remember she is with you always. I talk to mine almost every day .

  3. Mae was a true soldier in every sense of the word. She was there for her nation, her children and family, as well as her God. She “fought the good fight” and now our Lord and Savior has greeted her with open arms saying, “Welcome home, My good and faithful servant!” Her church family will miss her but knows we will see her and John again!

  4. Mae was a soldier in every sense of the word. She not only served her nation, she served her family and her God, as well. Our Lord has greeted her with open arms and the best statement one of His followers could hear, “Well done, My good and faithful servant!”
    Mae will be missed by her church family, but we know that we will
    be with her and John again.

    Our prayers are with the family, but know this, your Mom is with the Lord.

  10. On Sunday morning, I lost my sweet mom & best friend. I have been walking a long journey with her through the storms of life and the aging process. Though trying at times,
    we both knew that God was always with us. I can’t say enough about all the care mom has received over the yrs. from the VA to Hospice, and those who came with a servant’s heart to do the work. I reflect on the many lives mom touched throughout her long and very blessed life. She was sweet, kind, gentle,exasperating,prayerful but most of all she was the one who knew me better than I knew myself. She was MOM. the Lord said your children will rise up and called you blessed. She would always tell me that in the storms of life, he will calm us not the storm. Your with Jesus now mom, Thank You for the honor of being your daughter & caregiver through some of your most difficult and trying days. I promised dad I would see you thru. Sadly my work is now finished. I will Love you forever, “Until the Pacific Ocean Wears Rubber Pants To Keep It’s Bottom Dry. Semper Fi Mom
