    Shawn Gibbs & family,

    At a time like this words will never replace or lift the hurt or pain felt when a loved one is no longer in the present state of being. Words like why, what, how, and when entering into our minds to find answers and to make sense for losing a loved one. I remember Mrs. Gibbs for her act of kindness and love towards me as a young child in the 80’s. She allowed me to come over and hang out at her house with Shawn on many occasions. She was a great neighbor and provider for her family. Remember that not all is lost because you all have memories to reflect on about her life. Your family will be in our prayers unto God and may His will be done. ~Love the Hayes & Gregory family

    If I could leave the family with one thought and hope to look to God for comfort, strength, and guidance during this transition and grief season. “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” Psalm 121: 1-2. Also Romans 8:28-39 there is a message for you all.

  22. To the entire Gibbs Family. My deepest sympathy and condolences to you and the entire family. May God comfort each one of you at this most diffucult time. Your mom will be missed by all. Continue to RIP Wanda.

  23. Jessica and Family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Your mother was such a kind woman and she loved my Stephanie and for that I will be eternally grateful! May God Bless you All!
