 Tammie, Scott, Marianna, Ruth and Margret, I am so sorry of Maria's passing. May you know that there is a new bright star in the sky and a guardian angel looking over you all. Every rain drop and every ray of sunshine she is there with you. May she rest in peace and soar with the Angels. God Bless you all! Love Chris.

 Rest in peace, Memaw Isaiah 40:31 But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
