    My deepest sympathies to Minnie’s family on your recent loss. I know it’s not easy to deal with at this moment. May you find comfort in God’s word the Bible. At Isaiah 25:8 He will swallow up death forever.” It was not our God’s purpose for us to get sick or die. He has made loving provisions to remove suffering and death from us forever.May the hope and promises in this Scripture bring you comfort and strength to endure the difficult days ahea

    I have known the Oliver Family since I was a little girl. I remember so many times coming to their home, with my Dad; Minnie making peach pies. Our Families attending Church together at Madison. So many memories I will cherish always. Miss Minnie was a very lovely Christian Lady, and I know when she got to the Pearly Gates she was shouting!!
    We will miss you, but we have the assurance, that we will see you again in Heaven.
    Our love and prayers are with all of the Family.
