    June was always one of the kindest persons I ever met. She was well thought of by me and her two nieces Timi Rene and Denise Ann. I thanked June for receiving me at the medical lodge on our first visit with a hug and a smile. She explained how she got into this situation and of course she felt it was hopeless to change anything. We prayed and sang her favorite songs on our first visit. She had a room full; two nieces, three great nieces and myself and a friend.On our second visit we prayed for the pain to go away and then we sang some of her favorite Baptist songs she requested. Her back and legs were hurting her so we all helped to turn her over slightly and massage her back which she enjoyed with much relief. We massaged her feet and legs and with her brother Chester’s help, we adjusted her in bed and made her more comfortable. My desire was for complete healing but she was ready to go meet the Lord. We miss her very much just knowing she walked the earth made living on this earth a little better. I pray comfort to her loved ones and a special blessing of protection and health to her son Jason and his precious wife.

    Dear Chester and Family,

    I didn’t get to know June all that well,
    but whenever we saw one another in passing,June always had that broad smile and a big hello. A few words spoken and then’a good seein’ you’. We’ll see each other again someday.
