    We pray for you as you go thru this tough time of grief and the adjustments ahead. Sis Carol was a great lady and such a joy to the Griffin’s in our ten year of ministry to her and the families at New Oak Grove. Sis . Carol had such a way of helping everyone to see their uniqueness and place in the community and the Lord’s family. We pray for Bro Lamar and the family as you grieve. I Thess 3 says we grieve but not as those who have no hope!

    Always sort of thought Carol would be around forever. In my eyes she was ageless…..fitting for someone who was such an angel.

    Mrs. Malphurs was one of my favorite teachers at Santa Fe Highschool. Her kindness and gentle spirit will never be forgotten. Its was evident in how she treated others that she loved God and his people. My condolences to her family.
