My sincerest condolences, at her passing, and congratulations for having such a wonderful woman as a part of your family. I dropped in the the Sunday service at the Presbyterian church in Ruston 4-5 years ago. Mrs. Jenkins recognized me a greeted me with genuine warmth. She made me feel very much welcome though we had not seen each other in 40 years. What a gem.

I never had the opportunity to meet any of her children but if you all are anything like your Mother and Father you are very special! My name is Wayne Snowden and I am the youngest child of Mary Snowden. I moved away from Ruston years ago but always visited your mother when I came home. I had the chance to visit her 2 years ago when she had just turned 100. She looked the same as she always did with her beautiful white hair, a smile on her face and had so much to tell me. She will be missed but never forgotten as both of your parents hold a special place in our family's heart.

I am so sorry for your loss. What has helped me in times like these is Revelation 21:4 which says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” If you need anyone to talk to, please email me.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I truly loved my sweet sister friend Kat..She was so beautiful inside and out. I love visiting with her listening to her advice I and making her laugh. My heart is so sad today because I know I will not see her again for a while. But I also know in my heart that kat is happier today because she is in the presence of the Lord. She lived her life with this one thing as her focus. Till we see each other again know How much I love you and I look forward to the day we are once again together
