    Dear Mike and Connie, I am so sorry to hear of Carolyn's (name I always knew her by) passing. I wanted to go to the funeral, but I couldn't get off work (work every Saturday). I have such good memories of her and both of you. She will live perfectly and forever in those memories and in Heaven. I remember when my mother passed away in 2007 and time does seem to make it easier. May your sorrow turn into sweet memories.

    Mrs. Nancy was a Faithful shopper at Food Lion on Market/Kerr Ave in Wilmington NC. I met her there over 20 years ago when I was the Customer Service Manager. Her infectious smile was always on her face. During the COVID-19 pandemic I was able to reconnect with her, through “Your are Enough” outreach ministries. Weekly I would bring her a bouquet of flowers. She would have a space on her counter available for her flowers. It was a blessing to have known her and loved her! My heart is heavy, because I didn’t get the opportunity to say goodbye, as I just found out she passed away. During her death, I also lost a love one, and I have been out of town. My condolences go out to the family; please know that Mrs. Nancy will be missed! God bless!
