    The Kenbridge community has lost such a wonderful and caring person. Eula was very diligent about communicating and staying in touch with my sister Katie Snead since her move to assisted living. My deepest sympathy to Gary and her children and to her sister Carol. RIP, Eula.

    So very sorry to learn of Eula's passing. She's one of the kindest, sweetest, most God-fearing ladies I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Heartfelt sympathies for the family.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this time. Eula was such a sweet person and I never saw her without a smile. I remember very well sitting in the bleachers at Neblett field watching our boys play ball and Eula rooting and cheering for all of the kids playing. She will certainly be missed by all that knew her. I am sure that God opened the gates to heaven and welcomed her in with out stretched arms. May God Bless and comfort you!

    Steven, Condolences to you and your family. I remember your mom every since you were in middle school and she continued to display her sweet gentle spirit and beautiful smile. Peace, love, and blessings.
    Posted by Wanda Smith Hill on 04/11/2021 - 09:25 PM
    Though we should rejoice for Eula in that she is now with her Savior who she dearly loved, I know that for those of us who remain on this earth, we are heartbroken. Eula was in a Monday Night online Bible Study class with me for several years. I will miss her sweet heart but one thing I know.... Eula used to say "I'm about to shout" when something from Scripture was especially hopeful and good news. Eula is shouting now and no more need to be "about to shout." I will look forward to when we can be reunited on some future day.
    Posted by Deborah R Baker on 04/11/2021 - 09:46 PM
    I am sorry to hear of Eula's passing. She was our classmate in the Precept Monday online class. We have never met but I have known her since 2012 and it broke my heart when I heard she passed away. She prayed many prayers for us. We will miss her. Like Deb said, I also imagine her shouting her praises to our Savior! Eula, you are now being taught the rest of the books of the Bible by the Author. Can't wait to join you in that class.

    So sorry to hear of Eula's passing. I know I speak for all of our Monday night Bible study when I say she will be dearly missed. She brought us great joy and wisdom through the years. I look forward to seeing her in heaven one day. I pray for comfort and strength for her family as they walk through this time of grief.
    Posted by Pat Stuart on 04/12/2021 - 11:59 PM
    Oh Eula, you will be missed! I so enjoyed doing Precepts Bible study with you. I adored your lovely accent (always made me think of The Waltons), your humor and insights. I know you are rejoicing in heaven right now! Hallelujah!
    Posted by Becky Wild on 04/13/2021 - 12:28 AM
    Dear Eula, How are you up there with Christ? I wish I could hear you brag about your good time there :) I was speechless because of grief when Deb let us know that you were no more...but soon after felt okay when reminded that YOU ARE NOW IN CHRIST!!! You will be missed!!!
