    There are no words that would let me express to Nancy, Sandra, Sherry, and Bill (as well as all of the grandchildren and great grandchildren) how my heart is breaking for each of you right now. Our parents were wonderful friends, so therefore, we all grew up together and had wonderful times!!! Our Dads have been gone for a number of years now, but we still miss them both. Now we are saying goodbye to Christine, a wonderful person and such a Christian. She will is loved and will be missed by so many people. Prayers for the entire family.

    Mrs. Thaxton was one of my favorite all time neighborhood moms. I always thought she was so pretty . We were neighbors when I started going to school .She witnessed all
    my bad behavior from her kitchen window with a smile . She reminded me of those behaviors the last time I visited her. To Bill and the girls my thoughts and prayers are with you. Your mom always made me feel so welcomed and loved. She was a wonderful lady.

    Sherry, Nancy, Sandra and Bill, I am so sorry for the loss of your precious Mother, Christine. You were all truly blessed to have such a loving, Christian Mother. She was
    equally blessed with four loving and caring children. Your Mother has left you something more precious than gold and that is her lasting Legacy. It will be passed down
    through all the generations to remember a life well lived. I will continue to lift you and your families in my prayers as you go through this difficult time. I hope it will give you comfort to know she touched so many lives.

  • Shelia Forsythe Butts Posted January 22, 2022 7:54 pm

    I’m so sorry to hear about your mama’s passing. She was such a sweet lady and I was very thankful for the years I got to know her better when she substituted at schools. I worked at Creedmoor Elementary for several years and we interacted there often. She was so funny and always made me feel like she was my mama. She had a very special way of making everyone feel good not matter what kind of day we were having. I know all of you will miss her. Will pray for your family as you prepare to say your goodbyes.

  • Edith Hicks McDuffie Posted January 23, 2022 2:48 am
