    I have many fond memories of M.C. She was as sweet as the treats she forced upon us. She was generous with her laugh. She displayed more patience than any reasonable person would have, as her grandson and his friends tried to iron out the kinks in their basement-rock-band melodies. She is loved and she will be missed by many.

    She was the ultimate of “a sweet lady” because of her wonderful disposition and her sweets she loved to make and gift to others. She will be missed.

    Diane, I am sorry to hear of the transitioning of your dear Mother. Yet, I rejoice with you knowing that there is no better place to be than in the Glorious presence of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May she Rest in Heavenly Peace until you meet again. Jesus promised in the Word of God that “I go to prepare a place for you, And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.” This lets us know that death is surely not the end, we will all one day meet again in the place He prepared for prepared people. Please know I will be lifting you and your family in prayer as you go through your season of bereavement. Love, Theresa

    M.C. was our sister in Christ, our neighbor in Seabrook for 30+ years, our camping buddy, and our very dear friend. We have already been missing her since we moved so far away from her in Florida. She was such a talented, creative woman who was also a wonderful cook and baker. Words are inadequate to express how we feel about her. Diane, Nic, J.B., and Sarah, we pray for God to comfort you and give you peace as you miss her and mourn her departing Planet Earth. Heaven is a little brighter because she is there.
