  5. Diana D. Moore says:

    I so hate she is gone but happy she no longer is in pain. For the short time we had communicated, she was interested in me & my life. She put in some time,trying to help me earn some money by putting some of my craft work in a location where it could be seen & maybe purchased. She took the time to tell me of other family members I never knew of. I just wish we could have got together at some time. I will miss her…

    Dear family of Neva Miller,
    We were privileged to know Neva at Pine Summit, but did not realize that she was DeeDee’s mother! and the grandmother of DJ, Aric, and Andrew. May the Lord bring sweet memories to each of you to treasure and to share.
    Looking to Jesus, Aninha and Keith

    What sweet (and funny)memories we have of Neva and her sweetheart, Van. A good life well lived with a loving family and many friends! Our prayer for everyone who loved and appreciated Neva is that God’s presence with peace, love and even joy will surround you bringing comfort and healing to your sad hearts. Not goodbye, just a gentle see you later. Rest in the arms of Jesus sweet friend. We will see you soon.

    To my knowledge, I never met Geneva in person; she and my mom Glenda Moore were dear friends when they were young. I had found Geneva’s name and contact information in some of my mom’s belongings, and reached out to Geneva via Facebook a year or two ago. We corresponded some, and I enjoyed getting to know her kind heart “virtually”. The last messages we passed were at the end of October; today she crossed my mind and I sent her a Facebook message…then I had a feeling, did a web search, and found her obituary. I know she is sadly missed by her family and friends. I hope she and my mom are running and giggling together in Heaven now, both free of their earthly illnesses and sufferings. You are all in my prayers <3 Lisa Blevins Winfree
