Dearest Dianna, Randy and Kevin,
What a precious, loving, gentle soul. A blessing to have a Mother like Mae. Oh how she love you all and your families. We talked of you often. I treasure all the times I spent with Mae and Dick. Wonderful memories. I never heard an unkind word about anyone from her lips. She was loving giving and treated everyone with love and respect. I, too., I am so sad I could not be with you to celebrate her life. She said love Jesus and we had many wonderful conversations.
Blessings dearest family,
Your cousin, Judy
I am sorry for your loss, What a wonderful legacy Dick and Mae left.
Both were such wonderful people. I loved them both, Mae loved unconditionally. I would love to have a hug from her right now.
May all your wonderful memories carry you thru this time.
Love to All
Kevin………sweet Mae……..She and Dick were such wonderful people. Raydell always loved visiting with them at church. I know you all will miss your Mom and we know she is definitely in Heaven with your dad and for that you can find peace as we pray for comfort and healing as you prepare to lay your Mom to rest. God Bless you all….sending Love, Steve and Shonda Hardy and Raydell too
Miss Mae was such a beautifully loving person. Always smiling and telling stories. Dianna has been my special friend for over 30 years and I met her mom and dad many years ago. I’m blessed to have known them. Rest high in the arms of Jesus, Mae. I’m sorry we cannot be there in person, but our prayers and thoughts are with you Dianna and your family.
My sweet aunt Mae, you will live forever in my heart.How I wish I could have lived near you growing up, But that’s OK, I knew how much you loved me any time you were around! I can hear you saying as clear as day: “ Oh you pretty thing. “
Actually you were the pretty one., aunt Mae! You could have been a model for sure . But that heart of yours, now that was a beautiful thing! ❤️
My earliest memory and why I will never forget was sitting in your lap at Gramps funeral. Sadly I don’t even remember my Gramp, I was only 3 I think.
I will never forget you or stop loving you , sweet aunt.
May all your beautiful deeds bless your eternally. Your niece, KY LA
Rest In Peace Mae, and sympathy for the
loss your family must feel. Dianna invited me
to her home for lunch to meet her mom. She
had been sharing with me many wonderful
stories about her mom and growing up. I
found Mae to be such a delightful lady, and
what a great sense of humor. We had such
fun. I am so glad I had the opportunity to
meet this sweet, loving lady.

Kevin, I am so sorry for your loss. Please know that I am praying for peace and comfort for you and your family during this time of great loss. Your mother seems like a wonderful woman, what a wonderful legacy of love-faith-family she leaves behind. My deepest sympathies. Doug Allen and Family
Sincere condolences to the family
She ran to those golden gates with that worn out Bible in her heart. The most genuine example of a Christian woman I ever met in my life. We would visit with her at Hillside when we visited my mother in law. I am not sad! She will be missed by Jolina as she visited her often. But she’s with her Jesus that she told everyone about! Go rest high Mae and give my Momma a hug!
Aunt Mae will always hold such a special place in my heart. She was part of my many childhood memories, all the way through my teens, and into adulthood when I had children of my own. Rest In Peace sweet lady and fly high with Uncle Dick. So much love and big hugs to all the family. I am very sorry I can’t be there in person. She will be greatly missed.
Mae was one of the most humble and loving woman that I ever met. We worked with her for many years and she was always a blessing to us. We are sorry for your loss and sending prayers of comfort and peace for the family. I am sure that she is resting in the presence of her Jesus.
