Condolences

  • Sending condolences from your cousin Regina in FL to Georgia, my thoughts and prayers are with you family. Love you all

  • Sharon, Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. "Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted". Mary Billups LaGuins

  • Sharon, Sammie, Edna, Ann, Emma, and the entire family, I would like to send my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your beautiful mother and matriarch. Mrs. Lumpkin met me for the first time in 1979 when I was a freshman in college with Sharon and from that day until I talked to her a few weeks before her passing, she treated me as though I was one of her daughters. She opened her home and heart to me in 1979 and never closed the door to her heart. I will truly miss her sweet spirit, but I am comforted and rejoicing knowing she is living in Eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ. -Sincerely, Antionette (Toni) Stiggers

  • Dear Sharon and family, I offer the following prayer from the Baha'i Faith for your well-loved matriarch. "Grant, O my Lord, that they who have ascended unto Thee may repair unto Him Who is the most exalted Companion, and abide beneath the shadow of the Tabernacle of Thy majesty and the Sanctuary of Thy glory. Sprinkle, O my Lord, upon them from the ocean on Thy forgiveness what will make them worthy to abide, so long as Thine own sovereignty endureth, within Thy most exalted kingdom and Thine all-highest dominion. Potent art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee." Sincerely, Effie

  • Our staff will continue to keep your family in our prayers. We thank you for allowing us to serve your family.
