Condolence & Memory Journal

Ms. Haley was my roommate while we were in Health South Rehab (2016) in Fredericksburg, VA. She and I became fast-friends and kept in touch after she left. We would call and write each other and she always asked about my family and encouraged me with her love of laughter and kindness. Even when I didn't hear back from her, I thought and prayed for her often. I am sorry to hear of her passing, however, find comfort in knowing she is in heaven because of her decision to ask Jesus to forgive her sins and come into her heart! (John 3:16-17; Romans 5:8 & 6:23. She was a vibrant, sweet and gentle woman. I am thankful to have met her and will continue to pray for the family.

Fondly,
Alecia Austin

I was surprised and sorry to hear about your passing Aunt Berta, I'm glad I had the chance to see you and tell you that I Love You weeks before your passing.

God knew how I would feel if I hadn't gotten that chance. Sleep well Auntie, you will always be in my heart.
