I actually know her family. I worked at Willard Healthcare and she always made me have a smile on my face, even on my not so good days, she would always make me smile. Just walking in her room and sitting there with her made me feel 1000% better. She was a sweet lady. My heart goes out to her family in this time of need. I’m sorry for your loss.
sympathy for your lose of your sister our prayer are with you
To the members of the Tackett family,
My heart goes out to you all regarding the death of your mother. On Sunday, she was mentioned during our prayer time and was to be added to our list of folks that we lift to God during the week.
I am sure you are filled with sorrow, because the loss of a “mother” is tremendous. I urge you to hold onto one another, express love to each other, and look to God who knows just how you feel.
Honor your mother by loving each other in a way that would cause her to smile.
May God’s grace be yours in great abundance in the days ahead.
