Condolences for the family of “Rita Lee Gray”

Condolence from Millie G Barkley on September 30th, 2019 7:32 pm

To all the family of Mrs Rita- She was a wonderful person and loved by all. I enjoyed talking with her on so many occasions. Growing up and going to school with Robert and Allen gave us lots to talk about after I was grown. She always spoke kindly of everyone and let you know how much she loved her Savior. She was given a beautiful voice and shared it so we all could enjoy. May your memories comfort you today and forever. Love and prayers-Millie Gallop Barkley

Condolence from Mary Jolliff Moore on October 1st, 2019 8:52 am

Allen, Robert, and Jeannie, I loved your Mom. She could do things left-handed and make them look like right-handed stuff. I used to tease her about that. I loved to accompany her when she sang. Angelic voice. I know y’all will be safe in God’s loving arms. I pray your many sweet memories of Rita will sustain you through these difficult times. Love, Mary

Condolence from Jeannette, Coy Ambrose on October 1st, 2019 2:11 pm

Prayers and sympathy to family at this time. Enjoy Miss Rita’s singing (blessed with a beautiful voice), her testimonies (she didn’t leave any in doubt of who, what she stood for), lived her testimony daily. Enjoyed the talks with her when working in Stumpy Point Post Office. God bless.

My deepest sympathy to the family of Rita. She was such a kind, sweet, loving person. She was a dear friend to my mom, Anna. My prayer is that they can now see each other again without pain or suffering at home with their Lord and Savior.

To the Family. “Death brings pain that only time can heal,
No words could ease what we truly feel;
But with God, her joy is eternally sealed,
And cherish her memories that death can’t even steal.
Lift up a smile for she is already in Paradise” Rita and Gaither and Jeannie were our first friends when we moved to Manns Harbour. in 1976 . From Johnny and Sue Hurt.

Condolence from Major on October 6th, 2019 11:23 pm

We never have enough time with those we love …on Earth. We will see you, Miss Rita, when we get home. You served God in Jesus’ example and gave yourself in self-sacrificial love. You were a faithful servant and example for all of us. God bless all mourning with the comfort and peace of the Holy Spirit.
