    For almost 40 years you were always a very special part of my life.I will truly miss all those sweet text messages I would get from you and the sweet little notes you would write to me when you were no longer able to talk Words cannot express the love I felt from you and the love I give too you. I miss you already, but have peace in knowing that you are in the arms of Jesus. Our hearts and prayers go out to your family and loved ones. One happy day we will meet again!!!

    Sister Rascoe was one amazing woman. From the very moment I met her, it felt as though her soul was hugging mine. She was so sweet and always had a smile on her face. I truly admired this woman. What a glorious thing it must be for her to be in the arms of Jesus now. Although we must continue on without her, she will ever more be a part of my heart. Our thoughts and prayers are with this wonderful family through this time. Soon and very soon we will be together again

    Aunt Shirley was always inspirational and positive. She was an amazing godly woman and the world is a better place because she passed through it. But now she is celebrating in the loving arms of our Lord. Thank you for your example and witness. You will be missed!

    We have lost a very dear friend and, an amazing woman of God but, we know she is in Heaven and suffers no more pain. She was a woman like no other; Always had that sweet smile and a word of encouragement; When she could no longer speak, she wrote us notes and gave us the thumbs up; She loved the Lord with all that was within her and gave of herself always. I loved her dearly and she lives on in my heart.
