I am so sorry to hear if the passing of Ms. Alexander! My family grew up on White Rock Hill and knew the family and the love she shared with them. May you find comfort in knowing that “To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.” She had 90 long years to prepare. What a blessing!! I know you will miss her but my prayers and condolences go out to the family during your hours of sadness. May you find comfort in your memories. God bless!!

Mrs. Frances will be missed by all that knew her. She was the grandmother to white rock hill. She knew everyone and everyone knew her. To the family I hope you find comfort in knowing that it took her 90 Blessed years to finish the race that Jesus sent her to run. She has her crown now and she is wearing it with a smile. She is with Jesus now. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven can not heal.

Sunshine, you don’t have to suffer or have any more pain in that human body. So, for now take your rest my dear. Take your rest. GOD willing, I shall see you at the feast in Heaven when JESUS is crowned King of kings and LORD of lords. I love you!
