Thank You From the Family of Ginger Wolfe

We, the family of Ginger Wolfe, would like to thank all of the people who came to be with us during our loss. To those who brought food, sent flowers, cards, and gifts, words cannot express how much it meant to us. We would like to especially thank all the friends and family members who came to our homes to offer words of condolence, gave countless hugs, helped to cook and clean, or just sat with us and shed tears. Also, we want to thank everyone who took the time to call us and let us know they had us in their thoughts and prayers. We also wish to give special thanks to Pleasant Run Baptist Church, Jack’s Branch Bible Church and their youth group, as well as Horse Creek Baptist Church for all the food, gifts, and prayer slips. We truly appreciate all that they have done. To the people at the Wal-Mart Distribution Center, we want to give thanks for all the supervisors and co-workers who came to tell us what a wonderful employee and friend Ginger had been to them over the last 13 years.

Our most sincere appreciation goes to Paula, Wes, and Tara Rominger, and the staff at Rominger’s Funeral Home for treating us with the utmost respect, kindness, and dignity. They provided us with exemplary service that far exceeded our expectations. We were so pleased with every aspect and cannot thank them enough. We also want to give special thanks to Corum’s Flower Shop. Janice Rice and Kathy Smith provided flowers that were not only beautiful, but captured Ginger’s very spirit and essence. We want to give our deepest appreciation to Rev. Jerry Hacker and Rev. Bobby Stevens. They expressed the most inspiringly, heartfelt, and genuine words of love we could have hoped to hear. Their words gave us comfort and we are proud to count both outstanding men as family. We also give special thanks to Vickie and Tony Bruner, as well as Marlene Henson and Rev. Bobby Stevens for providing the music and songs. Their voices are exceptional and the songs were performed beautifully. We also wish to give special thanks to the friends and family members who served as pallbearers.

We may never be able to thank each and every person who visited with us, sent food, flowers, and gifts or expressed sympathy and said prayers for us during our loss but we want each one to know we are eternally grateful. All their kindness, generosity, and love could never be repaid, but it will never be forgotten. From the bottom of our hearts, we say thank you to one and all.

With Love and Gratitude,

The Family of Ginger Wolfe

In Loving Memory of Ray Barger

July 12, 1938 – February 6, 2009

We feel a warmth around us, like your presence is so near.

And we close our eyes and visualize your face when you were here.

We remember the times we spent together and they’re locked

within our hearts.

As long as we have our memories, we will never be apart.

Ray, even though we can’t speak to you face to face anymore, our voices are always there, thanking God that you were our brother and that  you stayed with us as long as you did;  thanking Him that He gave us a brother who was full of love and compassion, not just for his family, but for everyone he met, especially old folks like Rosemary,  your next door neighbor on Queen City, and Jimbo’s mom and dad across the street.  They loved you too.  How many times they’ve told me that!

You’ll always be in our hearts until the time comes for us to join


We know you’ll always be watching over us, as are Mom and Dad.

May our love for you reach Heaven today.  Don’t forget to tell Doug and F.M. and Curt and of course Mom and Dad, that we will never forget them and that our love for them will never die.   Until we meet on the far side of the river   ……

Lois, Lou, Jo and Pat

In Loving Memory of Shade and Lettie Gons

If you could see me now you wouldn’t shed a tear. Though you may not understand why I’m no longer there. Remember my spirit that is the real me because I’m still very much a live, I’ve just been set free, oh, if you could only see! I have beheld our Father’s face and I’ve touched my savior’s hand. All of Heavens angels rejoiced as I entered the Promised Land. Beyond the gates of pearl I’ve walked on the golden streets. I’ve touched the wall of jasper and dipped my foot in the crystal sea. The beauty is beyond words and nothing could compare, I’ve seen your mansion and someday I’ll meet you there. Let Jesus be your guide because his word will show you the way! So please don’t cry because we will meet again someday.

In loving memory of Shade & Lettie Goins March 8th, 1926 to July 19th, 1998, May 2nd, 1928 to July 11th, 2005, Happy Anniversary on July 15th.
