Dear Nunn Family:

Please accept my sincerest condolences for your loss and while I did not know Mrs. Nunn personally, I was saddened to hear of her passing. I know she was loved and will be sorely missed. At Psalms 90: 9,10 the bible says, “We have finished our years just like a whisper. In themselves the days of our years are seventy years; and if because of special mightiness they are eighty years…” Mrs. Nunn lived to be 82 years surely she was under that “Special Mightiness”. While losing her is sad, I hope you will find comfort in the scriptures. The Bible also teaches us about a resurrection, it says there is going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous [Acts 24:15] God is so loving, he knew we would need help when someone we love dies, that is why he gives us hope... the hope of one day seeing our loved ones again. This is called The Resurrection Hope. Jesus provided a foregleam of this hope when he resurrected his friend Lazarus. [John 11:38-44] Please review these scriptures in your personal copy of the bible. And may Jehovah, the God of all comfort, be with you during this difficult time. [2 Corinthians 1:3]

Dear Nunn Family,

I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Helen''s passing but I know she is now free of any pain and with her beloved Thomas. She was such a special woman with her quiet grace and wisdom. She will be missed. Mom so wanted to see her one last time in Kentucky but this was not to be. We love you all and hope to see you soon.

With love,

Marlis and Richard Wilcox

To Brenda and all siblings and grandchildren; There is no better testimonial to any parent than the complete love and devotion, the frequent retelling of pleasant memories, the expressions of gratitude for one''s upbringing - for any parent. Your parents have to have been the best ever, for that is all we ever witnessed from you. It will continue to give you the happy hearts, the serenity in knowing your mother and father are experiencing the eternal peace they so well deserve, the contentment in your hearts knowing they are blessed. We feel your grief at this parting and hope to help you bear up under this loss as well. Much love, Marlis and Richard

Dear Cousins, I always wished we lived closer to be a part of each others lives more. It was the greatest when you lived in Terre Haute and would visit us in Danville. And, the family reunions that ended so long ago continue to be wonderful memories. I know how much it hurts to loose Aunt Helen. She always beamed with happiness and had the kindest words that saved me from Dad a few times!!! Now she is with family again enjoying the greatest reunion of all...free of pain. May God comfort all your hearts and fill you with all the wonderful times of Aunt Helen''s love and laughter. Wish we could be there to hug you and cry with you, and share our memories. All my love, Jerri Lynn
