Ruby Grandy Phillips Dear Family, My Appointment I had an appointment, was mine alone The Savior beckoned, said "my child it's time to come home I had long yearned to be with Him To see Him face to face and to thank Him for the many victories He helped me to win I wanted so much to say good bye But I didn't want to see you cry Though you miss me don't be sad I've made it over, come now wipe your tears and be glad My life on earth has been well spent You've been good to me, I've been content This is not the end of our times together God has promised, we'll be reunited for ever and ever His grace is sufficient, He'll see you through If you trust in Him and His will you will do So tarry just a little while longer Your memories of me will soon make you stronger My love for you will always be Soon it will once again be you and me Endless Love My prayers and thoughts are with you as you travel this phase of life's journey. I fondly remember yesterday and the good memories we shared growing up. It's hard to say goodbye to yesterday but in the sweet bye and bye we shall meet again and we'll never more have to say goodbye. May the sweet memories of your mom sustain you until you meet again. Sorrowfully Ruby Grandy Phillips

Shelia Bland and Family I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of my neighbor, Miss Bertie. She possessed a beautiful, caring spirit. I will miss looking out my back door watching her clean her yard planting flowers, or giving Sky some food. Just last week I saw her standing at the back door gazing into the heavens. I had to toot my car horn to get her attention. She always had a kind word to say to me. Not knowing that it would be my last time seeing her alive. To Sugar, George and the other family members may God continue to strengthen and comfort each of you.
