Condolence from Myra and Frank Reynolds on January 22nd, 2022 11:10 am

Our sympathy and prayers for each of you. Besides being one of the many Sheva Girls that attended RBC I think back to the Gospel Rally around 1970 when she and Mr. Alligood opened their home for housing for several of us Sheva Girls while attending classes and sessions. Such special memories of her hospitality. She certainly had a special joy inside that was manifested in her laughter. Can’t imagine the wonderful family reunion she must be enjoying. Sending our love !

Keith and I offer our condolences to each of you. Mrs. “OJA” was indeed a gem. A very rare jewel. Always a smile and a kind word. Such an example of a godly wife, mother and friend. I know she will be missed by many but thank the Lord for that hope referred to in I Thessalonians 4, we that know Jesus WILL see her again! God bless you all, you’re in our prayers.

Condolence from Darlene Quiel on January 24th, 2022 2:05 pm

Thoughts and prayers to all who knew Mrs. Alligood. I met her once at our church when she and Mr. Alligood came to see their son preach. Like any parent, she was very proud of him! That’s how moms are. They love their family and are the best cheerleaders! I could see that both of Neal’s parents were overjoyed for what he was doing for the Lord. Now she’ll watch her family from heaven with her beautiful smile. Praying for peace.

My sympathies to you, Phil, and your family. Whenever I hear your names it transfers me back to when you preached in Havelock as a young student at then Roanoke Bible College. Both of you were always folks that my parents, Don and Ruth, thought a lot of and was always glad to see you and hear you preach. My heart goes out to you all during this time of grieve and sadness. But, Ora Jane is in a better place and in no more pain. With the Lord’s blessing we will all see each other again.

Thinking of all of u at this time. A lady who had all the gifts to share with others , always a smile and never complained, can just imagine what is waiting for her in her heavenly home, yes she will be missed but no more pain or suffering . To the man in her life he will miss her more than we have words but one day they will be together again. This is people who were really your friend. Sorry to say we can not attend staying close at home. Prayers to all, still afraid of the Virus our Hearts will be with you.
