    Mary was a dear friend of ours as a result of being a part of her home group and our time planting Church of the Redeemer in the conservative, orthodox Anglican tradition. She was an inspiration or all of us in her desire to be true to her faith and to assure that we maintain study and understanding of the Bible. She will be sorely. Issued, but she will still be there with us in our journey to keep our church strong. Thank you, Mary, for the legacy you have left us with in our own efforts to understand God.

    I am so sorry for your loss. Although, I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. Very soon now, we will never experience losing our loved ones in death. May these words give you a new hope.

    Condolences to the Family:

    I am so glad my life crossed paths with Ms. Mary. I have enjoyed many conversations with this sweet lady.
    She always spoke about her family,her church, and her personal driver that help make her life fulfilled so she could be independent.
    She often spoke of those who had touched her life and helped her through this earthly life, but her legacy lives in each of us.
    I know God has welcomed Ms Mary home. She was a good and faithful servant.

    I was so sorry to hear of Mary’s death. She was a very special friend to my mother, Lucie Overman who passed away in January of 2013. She was also very special to me and got me through some very difficult times, always with words of encouragement and much prayer! I feel very secure in the knowledge that she is indeed in heaven, and heaven is celebrating her arrival! We will miss her here, but my mother is certainly happy to have her to talk with again! My prayers are with your family.

    Linda O. Williams

    Gene, Joe and family: We express our deepest sympathy to each one of you on the death of your dear sister, Mary. After reading the previous condolences from others, she was a wonderful lady. And after knowing Gene and Joe, I can “see” the resemblance. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this sad time. Love you, Laura & Dave Dixon

    I am very honored to have known Ms. Mary Armstrong. She was a beautiful and strong woman and my family and I learned a great deal from her. It makes me happy that she was able to see my son who was born last august. I will miss our talks. Love to all the family I heard so much about.
