I will remember Saundra fondly. We were neighbors on Dahlia Dr in Little Rock back in the 70s. My children Tommy and Pamela Richard played with John and Joel all the time. My condolences go out to the family. May she rest in peace.
Joel, As I read your mother’s obituary this morning I thought of the many times you referred to your mother and her welfare. I am sad you are going through this passage of life, but know you are joyful in knowing that she is in her permanent home. I could tell by the way you referred to her that you loved her deeply.
We grew up as neighbors on Hwy. 7 in Smackover with Saundra, Laura, & Bill. Saundra was always so sweet to me and as a young kid I looked up to her. She loaned me one of her hoop skirts to wear in my 6th grade graduation, and gave me one of her old batons. I will always remember her kindness to me, a young kid. Sally Hunt Mears
I am sorry for the loss of your loved one and would like to share some comforting thoughts from the Bible. At John 5:28 & 29 Jesus tells us, “Do not marvel at this, because the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.” It is comforting to know that Jehovah God does not want our loved ones to be asleep in death forever, but through his son Jesus Christ he gives all the hope of a resurrection to a paradise earth. Also at Revelation 21:4 we are promised that our kind and merciful God, Jehovah, will end all pain, suffering and death.
I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that you are never alone. You can find much comfort in God’s Word, the Bible, which assures us at Psalms 34:18 that God is near to those broken at heart and crushed in spirit. Please accept my deepest sympathies.
