Debbie Brandon Halbrook, My BFF-Sister, and the entire Brandon Family, I extend to you my deepest & sincerest sympathy. Though there were struggles, hers was a life well-lived. A heart of gold and a spirit of pure love. I truly feel blessed to have had the honor of having met Miss Mary Mae. I'll always remember her sweet smile and sense of humor; an adoring mother, grandmother, and friend. Surely, a virtuous woman in the eyes of God and all who knew her. I pray the Lord will comfort you and give you perfect peace as she rests in the arms of Our Savior. Her love will live on in your hearts and minds as you recall all the great memories you've shared. Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. Love, Prayer, Hope, & Peace Be With You As A Family. REST IN ETERNAL PEACE, MISS MARY MAE & THANK YOU FOR MY SISTER.

Always Alexia

Safe in God's Keeping

I am Home in Heaven, dear ones,
Oh! so happy and so bright!
There is prefect joy and beauty
In this Everlasting Light.

All the pain and grief are over,
Every restless yearning past;
I am now at peace forever.
Safely Home in Heaven at last.

Dear ones, do not grieve so sorely.
For I love you all dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows.
Pray to trust Our Father's Will.

When your work is all completed
He will gently call you Home.
Oh! the rapture of that meeting!
Oh! the joy to see you come!
