    A person is not given too many compass’s to provide direction, love and support in life. Grandma was a one of a kind, wonderful person who’s love, support and friendship will be sorely missed. I have so many fond memories of holidays and visits through my life. I love you Grandma/Grandpa and look forward to seeing you both again and being filled with your love in Heaven.

    What a blessing to have a family of faith where you know, without a shadow of a doubt, that you will see each other in heaven again one day.
    Blessings to you all.

    Have known Daisy, Donna and Frank for a short time. What precious dear people. I stole this from Pastor Jeff……Assurance of our salvation is such a wonderful gift to leave to our family, and Daisy so did that!

    I attended Daisy’s Bible Study at North Cross UMC for several years and learned a lot. But the one thing I appreciate about her the most is that she taught me how to pray as if I were merely talking to God. She always had a list of questions she compiled to ask God when she got to heaven and I know she is at his feet getting all her answers right now!!! My prayers and thoughts go out to her family.

    Dear Daisy! What a precious aunt! Every memory I have of her is filled with her great smile, infectious laugh, her enthusiasm for life, and her encouraging words. She was a great support to me in my writing efforts and is still very dear to my heart. What a grand reunion it must have been in Heaven when she arrived! Her dear Allen, my daddy and mother, her sister, Minty; and brothers-in-law, Keith and Ted, not to mention her grandparents and dad, all gathered at the Pearly Gates to greet her! What a great celebration they are having! And the Guest of Honor…the One she loves so dearly, Jesus! My love to my dear cousins. It is so wonderful to know that this is just a temporary parting and that one of these days, we get to join the party, never to be separated again!
