  1. I want to express my sincere sympathy for the loss of your loved one and I hope the following suggestions help the family members and those who loved Myrtice Plunkett Howell to lessen their grief.
    • Talk about your feelings to “a true companion” who will listen patiently and sympathetically.
    • If you have feelings of guilt thinking that some neglect on your part contributed to your loved one’s death, realize though, that no matter how much we love another person, we cannot prevent “time and unforeseen occurrence from befalling those we love. Ecclesiastes 9:11
    More than anything else, a relationship with God can help you to cope with the death of someone you love. Isaiah 33:24 promises the time when an end to sickness will become a reality. God will put an end to pain, suffering and even DEATH. God promises at Isaiah 25:8 that death will be swallowed up forever.

  2. Jean – You mother was the perfect image of a true southern lady. Always had kind words for everyone and a smile on her face.

  3. We would like to extend our dearest condolences for the lost of your Mother. We have fond memories and her as well as of your Father.
