I wanted to reach out to you during this sad time to offer my condolences. While nothing will completely take away your grief, by meditating on God's promises found in the Bible, you can find real hope and the strength to keep going. I have found the scripture at Isaiah 25:8 to be especially comforting. Here it promises that God "will swallow up death forever, And the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces."

I was so saddened to hear of Mrs. Spearman's passing. I got to know her when my mother was a resident at Springfield Place. She was always soft spoken and showed dear concern when my mother wasn't able to come to a meal. They sat at tables beside each other. She was a sweet sweet lady and I hope your sweet memories of her help you in the days and times to ahead.

It was a pleasure to get to know Mrs.Spearman on my visits to Springfield Place for our Tuesday Sunday School. She often stayed afterwards for the two of us to chat. I was so fond of her and will miss her tremendously when I'm there next Tuesday. I send my condolences to you all.

So very sorry to hear about Marion’s passing. Although we were not able to spend a lot of time together she was very sweet to me. We did have phone conversations when Buddy & Beattie were both diagnosed with Parkinson’s & were seeing the same physician. Am sorry that I will not be able to attend the funeral, but all of you will be in my prayers. Love, Mary Ellen

We enjoyed Mrs. Spearman in our Sunday School class at Springfield Place. She was an active participant and a delight. We loved her positive attitude. She was very proud of her family and I know you were proud of your mom. You have wonderful memories I am sure. May God's grace and peace be with you at this sad time and in the days ahead.

I am so sorry for your loss. Over the last few years, I often passed your mom as she was "out and about" walking at Springfield Place. She was always so pleasant. My mom, Nancy Eleazer, knew your mother from the lake and always spoke fondly of her. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. May she rest in peace.
