    Today your mother heard our Lord call her home and she completed this earthly journey. Mrs. Daisy’s life was a wonderful testimony of her faith and sweet nature. I have so many fond memories of your mother from my childhood and have always called her my “second” mother. I weep with you today but also can rejoice knowing this separation is only temporary and then we will be reunited for eternity. We love you all and pray that you will feel God’s comforting presence and strength during the days ahead.

    Jennifer & Bill Stowe

    Ernie and I will miss her so much. She was a constant presence throughout Ernie’s life and my first friend here in Hatteras. Miss Daisy was, to us, the epitome of kindness and sweetness and the village has lost a special goodness. We are holding you all close to our hearts. Love, Ernie & Lynne

    This Island has lost one amazing woman, Daisy was truly an amazing Christian woman, wife, mother, and grandmother. There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it. This is what Daisy truly was. Daisy was a rose that has stood true to the storms of life, and today she has her greatest reward, she’s safe in the arms of Jesus. Love and prayers to all the family!

    We are so sorry for your loss. Words cannot express the emotions I am feeling at this time. Since I was a young child, Miss Daisy was such a positive influence in my life. Her calm, peaceful spirit was such an inspiration. What a Godly example she was to those around her. Her family and Hatteras community is experiencing a tremendous loss. May we all follow her Christ-like example. Love and prayers to you all.
