  1. In Deepest Sympathy

    Our deepest sympathy goes out to you and your family. Lucy was a precious Christian woman and she certainly lived what she believed. I know you will miss her dearly. We will continue to pray for Gods grace to comfort you during this time of loss. Many memories and much love.

  2. My Message to Mamma

    Mamma, thank your for the wisdom, guidance, and love you shared and taught me during my lifetime spent with you. I appreciate the Christian principles and virtues you lived each day showing me just how important it was to have Christ in my heart and life as my Lord and Savior. I know you are not suffering now and you are truly in the presence of God. I will miss you but please know you are and will forever remain in my heart. I’ll see you in Heaven and when we reunite I want to stroll over Heaven with you. God could not have chosen a better Mamma for me. Thank you because you always put your family’s needs before your own. Until we meet again your memory will live on in my heart. All my love.

  3. My Deepest Sympathy

    Dear Bracey Family,

    I am writing to express my condolences. While words fail to capture the pain of losing a loved one, we look forward to the time when words will fail to capture the JOY of having our Heavenly Father return your dear one to you. The Bible offers words of comfort at 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4, were it says in part, “the Father of tender mercies and the God of all comfort, comforts us in all our trials.” May you all find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and reunite her with you all again.
