Mr. & Mrs. Toney, Dawn and I are so sad to hear of your daughter's passing. I know she had suffered much, but I know her suffering is now over as she rejoices at her Savior's feet! Dawn, myself, and Cane Creek Baptist Church will be keeping you and your family in our prayers. May God bless and keep you in His tender, loving care; and may He comfort and strengthen you with His Spirit! Danny & Dawn Camp

MARESA AND FAMILY, MY SINCEREST SYMPATHIES GO OUT TO YOUR ENTIRE FAMILY. THE TONEYS, LOVELACES, AND WATERS FAMILY HAVE BEEN AND ARE SUCH A VITAL PART OF OUR WESTMINSTER/CANE CREEK FAMILY AND NEIGHBORS. MY ONLY REGRET IS THAT I DID NOT MAKE MORE EFFORT TO SPEND MORE TIME WITH CHRISTEE, BUT MYSELF, SHERRIE AND CHRISTEE DID HAVE ONE LAST LUNCH TOGETHER AND FOR THAT I AM GRATEFUL. WE LOVED HER LIKE A SISTER AND WE''RE SO HAPPY TO KNOW SHE HAD MADE THINGS RIGHT BETWEEN HER AND GOD. SHE COULDN''T BE IN A BETTER PLACE! SO MUCH BETTER THAN THE PLACES SHE DREAMED OF TRAVELING TOO! YOUR FAMILY WILL BE IN OUR PRAYERS. GOD BLESS

Carrie, Ryan, Maresa, Victor, and family. Learning of God's decision to take Christee home from her suffering. Brought tears to my eyes, and that emptiness of loss for all of you. Words are often used to express ones feeling of sorrow and grief. Only those left behind truly understand how leaning on our Lord's strength gets us through these difficult times. All I could think of after reading Carrie's post. Was how Christee was reuniting with her Mother, and Dad at the feet of Jesus. I ask the Lord to surround each of you with His strengthening Angels of sweet comfort, and peace. Memories we all shall hold onto, as to what a loving Mother, daughter, sister, and friend Christee was here on her earthly home. I could vision that smile of her brother, ( Dean) as he welcomed her into her new eternal home, pain free. You all will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers as you have been for months gone past. Lord, I come to You with an open heart of prayer for this dear family this morning. I ask that Your love,strength,and guidance lead each of these wonderful family member's through the days ahead with precious peace, and memories of Christee in her new body. In Jesus name, Amen.

May God Be Close In Your Hearts,
Debbie R. Dobbins

Dear Don and all the family,
You are in my thoughts and prayers today; I just heard the sad news about Christee and I am so very sorry. It is, as others have expressed, a comfort to know she is with Jesus and her loved ones who are already there and especially to know you will see her again one day.
May God bless you all with His peace,
Lisa
