  1. May each of you find courage to face tomorrow as you rest in the knowledge that we truly care about each of your needs and that we will be here to walk beside you in your journey of grief.

    Eddie Beagles and the staff of Legacy Cremation & Funeral Services

  2. I know the feeling of losing a mother and wish I could snap my fingers to take the pain away. Grieve at your own pace and remember all the good times with your mother. In time, it’ll get easier and when you need to cry…cry it out. Prayers for all of you!

  3. I am sorry to learn of the passing of Cynthia last year. I became acquainted with her when she accompanied her friend who cared for our trees. We found we had things in common like our daughters had the same name and we love pets. She shared her stories of pet rescue. I know she was suffering near the end, so I’m glad she is at peace now. I am sorry to learn she is gone.
