To Mary''s Family:

I am so sorry to learn of Mary''s death. She was such a wonderful person in my life. From my earliest recollections as a small child, through 5th & 6th Grade Boys Sunday School Class, and as a brother and sister serving the Lord together, Mary was always a encouragement to me. Even so, this past year as she encouraged and supported Lisa and I our journey into the mission field. I deeply appreciated her.

Both of your parents were amazing people in my life and I just wanted to express my sorrow, but also my love for both of them. I do find solice in our glad reunion someday and I am envisioning what the reunion of your parents must have been like. A true comfort to me and I hope to you.

Remember that God love you so much and is with you!

God Bless,

Steve and Lisa Vitaniemi

Mary Moore has been a joy to know. We shared and enjoyed "mutual Grandones". Mary's quiet Christian way of life and her happy spirit will be how we remember her. God has given us all a treasured gift of MEMORY. We will use it when we think of, pray for, or exchange remembrances of this good lady. In coming times may the memories erase grief. Our family knows she blessed us with or daughter-in-love, Chris

Dear "Moore Kids",

Mom and I are out of state this week and just learned of your mom''s death. We are thinking of you and praying for you at this sad time. Your mom was a very important part of my early years in life at State Line Christian Church. I have many good memories of your family. What a servant heart she had and how she used her gifts to serve others at "our" church! I will always appreciate that our paths crossed just about a month ago and we shared a good hug as she was "serving" our family at Uncle Paul''s funeral dinner. I asked her to catch me up on each of you in our conversation...she was so proud of all of you. Peace, strength and love to you. Know that I care...deeply.

We are so sorry to learn of Mary’s death. Your parents were great neighbors out here in the country. Both were always there to lend a hand to help. Mary gave us recipes for canning apple pie filling and for the black raspberries. We will both remember her fondly. We wanted to express our sorrow at a time like this. Try to remember all the good times that you had with a mother and father like you had.

My condolences to Mary's family. Mary was a special lady, that's for sure. She will be missed. In the years since we have been gone from State Line, Mary made an effort to keep in touch with us. Since moving to Frankton two years ago, I was a recipient of regular "epistles from Mary." I loved getting those chatty letters, full of news of family, church, happenings in Clinton, and funny remembrances. It can be of no small comfort for you all to know that with Mary, you can grieve with hope. She is now at peace and singing with the choir of angels. I imagine she might even be playing the organ for them!
In Christ's Love,
Verna (Doug) Davis
