Offering our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to the Conners family. May the love of family and friends as well as the words at “2 Corinthians 1:3,4” also “”John 5:28,29” continued to help you get through this most difficult times.

, ,

May the friends and family of Mrs. Connors find comfort in the Bible's promises that soon, "all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out" (John 5:28, 29), and "[God] will wipe out every tear from [our] eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore." (Revelation 21:3, 4). We can also rest assured that God 'will swallow up death forever, and He will wipe away the tears from all faces...for He himself has spoken it.' (Isaiah 25:8) https://www.jw.org/en/bible-teachings/questions/about-life-and-death/

Dear Connors clan, may you all be comforted during this time by the grace of the Holy Spirit. While I never met Marjory, your sharing your memories certainly made me feel like I did, that, and my other family members who knew her well, and spoke of her. She sounded like quite a gal! Peace...Agnes L. Harty

Lisa, May God give you continued peace and strength. Your mom was so blessed and I know she was well taken care of. You all are in our thoughts and prayers. Kelly

Kelly Kilpatrick Hunt, Savannah, Ga

It was a pleasure getting to know Marjory when she joined the Lachlan McIntosh Chapter National Daughters of the American Revolution. She will truly be missed by her fellow daughters.

Christian love and sympathy to Mrs. Connor's family. I always looked for her after the Chapel S.S. Class on Sunday's at River's Edge. A great joy to talk with her for a few minutes before she went to her church service. She is and will be missed. We have the hope that Jesus promised. As His children, because He lives, we too, will live. So, we look forward to the day when we will join Him and our loved ones in Heaven.

Gail R. Jones, Guyton, GA

Lisa, Your mama was a treasure and all of you treated her as such. I am happy for all of you that she lived such a long and beautiful life.

Page Middleton Olson, Roswell, GA

My sincere condolences to the family sorry for your loss. At Acts 24:15 it talks about a resurrection. We look forward to that hope because it is a chance we may get to see our loved ones again. Please when you get a chance read that scripture an other scriptures to help cope.

Dear Conners, Jordan, Daniel, Flynn families, Steve and I have had the great honor of your families' friendship for over 35 years. Through that friendship, we were fortunate to get to know Margy and spend some lovely times with her (and earlier on, with both Joe and her). She was a charming lady with a great sense of humor. She will be missed and mourned. Keep sharing your memories of her, whether in laughter or tears, for they will keep her alive for the next generation -- and her spirit will live on in all of you. We love you all, Karen and Steve Goss

Karen and Steve Goss, Stone Mountain, GA

I'll be keeping you all in my prayers. As you lay your mother to rest. I have many memories of her and your father, at the Gordonstone house and on 46th St. I only wish I could be there in person. God bless you all. Cecilia

Cecilia Lenahan, Deer Lodge, MT

I offer my condolences. May God comfort and strengthen you. Psalms 29:11
