~In Loving Memory~

Mary was married to Ben Scearce and they had three children.
Jerry Lynn, Fern and Judy Ann.

Mom lived 13 months after my sister comitted suicide. She died from lymphatic cancer.

Mom had been saved at an early age. She was a member of Thorn Hill Missionary Babtist Church.

She was truly a great lady. When we were small children, she washed and ironed for people so we would have enough food to eat. She worked in tobacco and factories that made cabinet's. It was hard to make end's meet alot of time's. I don't ever remember her complaining about not having good clothes, she alway's wore what someone gave her. She was a great mother and grandmother.

Her life on earth was short, she died at 48, but she left us a legacy of love and we were taught early on to try to help the less fortunate, and love each other. Life was not easy for her.

Mom, I love you and I'll meet you in Heaven. Watch over Johnny. Love, Judy.

Mary is the young lady in the middle of the picture on top.
Rita, Thank you again for helping me. I love you and I appreciate you so much.

I would like to thank everyone for leaving flower's, when you do. I love this site and I have met some great people. God Bless each and everyone of you.

Anne, Thank you for sponsoring my mom's memorial. THANK YOU LORD, FOR A SPECIAL FRIEND!


I have a special job in life-I am a mother and a wife.
I am not paid a salary, All the work I do is free.

I rise each morning, and I pray that God will use my life today,
To touch the lives He's given me with word's and deed's of charity.

I cook and wash, I sew and clean, It never end's, It seem's to me.
I hug and kiss, I teach and guide, I read and play, I laugh and cry.

I have my life, The bad and good, I would not change it if I could.
I find great joy, peace and pleasure in being one of life's greatest treasure's.
Yes, I'm a mother and a wife...there is no greater job in life.

"Practice make's perfect."
So be careful what you practice.

Some people who say "OUR FATHER" on Sunday go around
the rest of the week acting like orphan's!

If you worry, You don't trust,
If you trust, you don't worry.


There is no love, like a mothers love,
no stronger bond on earth...
like the precious bond that comes from God,
to a mother, when she gives birth.

A mothers love is forever strong,
never changing for all time...
and when her children need her most,
a mothers love will shine.

God bless these special mothers,
Good bless them every one...
for all the tears and heartache,
and for the special work they've done.

When her days on earth are over,
a mothers love lives on...
through many generations,
with Gods blessings on each one.

Be thankful for our mothers,
for they love with a higher love...
for the power God has given,
and the strength from up above.

They say that man is mighty,
He governs land and sea,
He weilds a mighty scepter,
O'er lesser powers that be,
But a mightier power and stronger,
Man from his throne has hurled,
For the hand that rocks the cradle,
Is the hand that rocks the world.

~William Ross Wallace~

A picture memory brings to me;
I look across the years and see
Myself beside my mothers knee.
I feel her gentle hand restrain
My selfish moods, and know again
A childs blind sense of wrong and pain.
But wiser now, a man gray grown.
My childhood's needs are better known.
My mothers chastening love I own.
John Greenleaf Whittier


Lord, give me patience when wee hands
Tug at me with their small demands,
Give me gentle and smiling eyes;
Keep my lips from hasty replies.
Let not weariness or noise
Obscure my vision of lifes fleeting joys.
So, when in years to come my house is still-
No bitter rooms its memories may fill.
