    Marjorie so sorry to hear of Fred's passing. Was always so nice to see and talk to both of you. Just know you are in our thoughts

    Margie, so shocked and regretful to hear about Fred's passing. You both have been so special to me over the years. And we had the extra connection with Jane and Fred being from the Wise and Norlina area. You have been kind and shared so many memories with many people over the years. May your grief be replaced with those fun and special memories over time. Let us know if there is anything we can do.

    Dear Lois and Harvey, We were so very sorry to learn that your brother Fred passed away. We send our heartfelt condolences to each of you. The Bible provides great comfort to all who have lost family and friends. John 5:28 promises "Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out." After the Great Tribulation is over and God's kingdom is in place, he will resurrect our loved ones. What a heartwarming time that will be! Love to you all, Bobbie and Bonnie Powers
