  3. “Faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life”…I think both Carl and Geneva Gravely exemplified this to anyone who knew them. I first met them through Clairmont Baptist Church many years ago and always thought they raised a wonderful family. I hope your memories of them will sustain the family through this time.

  4. Mr. Carl was the first neighbor to welcome us to the neighborhood when we moved in next door almost 4yrs ago. He always had a kind word. I will miss our mailbox chats.

  5. To the family of Mr. Gravely: I wanted to offer my sincere condolences for the loss of your loved one. Even though the human condition at present must endure such losses the Holy Scriptures provides real comfort and a secure hope of the reversal of the effects of passing. Please, capture the time to read in a copy of the Bible the encouraging experience that Jesus performed for some dearly loved friends back in his day. JOHN 11:5 to 45 is were you shall locate this wonderful act of the son of Almighty God. God’s son shall do the same for our loved ones and countless others in the near future. Take care, and may your family experience solace in this time of loss. Much affection and fellow feeling to you all.

  6. Sorry for your loss Martin & Shirley & family. He was a good man and we thought a lot of him.He will surely be missed.Our love and prayers to all.

  7. I fondly remember the many hours we shared at Southern Bell, especially the time we spent drinking coffee and discussing everything under the sun, and hearing stories of his growing up in WV.
