May you find comfort in knowing that your dear one is safe in the memory of God, who will remember every detail about her and bring her back again (John 5:28&29)

Jacqueline, Loganville,

I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. I can't exactly understand how you feel, but our Heavenly Father Jehovah does, and he will give you the strength to endure. May the wonderful memories you have of Mary bring you comfort and the words found at Isaiah 41:13 where God says he is grasping your right hand, the one saying do not be afraid I will help you during this difficult time. Please go to jw.org if you have any questions about what happens to our loved ones we lose in death.

S. Love, , Ga.

So sorry to hear about Ms. Moses - King.... she was one of my favorite teachers at Cross Keys and a great leader for the VOT program! I remember when she got married.... Prayers for the family, so sorry for your loss.

debbie (carroll) hill, dallas, ga

To the family of Mrs. Mary Ann King, my deepest condolences...please know that she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. I am one of her students from the SHS Finance magnet program and am grateful to God for having her cross paths in my life. She was an inspiration...never allowing me or any student to concede defeat, finding the best in each of us: she always there to share in our joys and tears. Her determination for us to simply be the best followed me through college and career. She will forever be, as Maya Angelou once stated, a rainbow my cloud.

Carlton Johnson LPA ABA, Atlanta, GA

Charlotte, Clint, Harry and Rusty and family, you have my heartfelt condolences on your loss of your mother and sister, a very special and dear woman. I will always remember her with a smile on her face and a kind work or deed for everyone. Throughout her battles with illness, she has been such an inspiration and role model to me. I only hope that I could be half as brave as she has been. I had so wanted to be there with you for her service today, but came down with a virus yesterday and wouldn't risk exposing anyone to it. Thinking of you with love and sympathy.

Ellen Walton, Hilton Head Island, GA

We were saddened to hear Mary Ann is no longer with us on this earth, but know she is now with our Lord and out of pain. We are praying for Clint and Charlotte, as well as the rest of her family and friends during this difficult time. May you all have the Lords peace, comfort, and strength.

Larry & Posie Lewis, Fredericksburg, VA

Our love and prayers are with all of the Moses/King family during this very sad time. We loved Mary Ann as everyone else did. She was always so sweet and happy and she just made everyone around her feel so loved. When we moved to Vidalia, we were so blessed to live across the street from Mary Ann's parents and her childhood home. The Moses treated us like we were one of the family. Mama Carolyn said she was happy to have another Marianne in their neighborhood again. I know she is having a happy celebration with her dear mom and dad. RIP, Mary Ann....you were and are dearly loved by all and will be missed here on Earth!

Jack and Marianne McMillan, Vidalia, GA

I have such precious memories of Mary Ann that will be with me until my time comes. I will miss her dearly. Charlotte and Clint, my heart goes out to you for your loss.

Nancy Skinner Ringier, Winter Park, FL

When I think of Mary Ann Moses King, I think of laughter. She was a blessing to me when I was in high school and we were both involved in the One Act Play. Mary Ann was the type of person you enjoyed being around. I was fortunate to reconnect with her when I moved to Savannah. Mary Ann spoke so highly of her children and how much joy they brought to her retired life. She was so proud of. Charlotte and Clint and they were blessed to call her Mom. May God provide you peace during this time.

Susan Zeigler Turner, Savannah, Ga

Mary Ann was a positive force in the lives of many teachers and students ~~~ and indeed, Savannah Arts Academy was a better school because of Mary Ann's tireless and selfless efforts to support teaching and learning. She was one of the most altruistic people I have known and was always "at the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing." She loved people and people loved her. God Bless the family and extended family as they navigate through the grief of Mary Ann's passing. With love and great respect, Terry and Marlborough

Terry Finlay and Marlborough Packard, Savannah, Georgia

Clint and Charlotte, you are in my thoughts during this difficult time. It was obvious how much love your family shared and I know you will always hold that in your hearts. May it bring you comfort in hard times and joy always as you remember and honor your wonderful mom.

Katherine Alt, Savannah,

My deepest condolences to the Moses and King family for the loss of your dear loved one. As I read "Mama King's" obituary, I could not help but notice how much she reminded me of so many good qualities we can all imitate. So during this most difficult time, may your hearts be comforted by Jehovah God's promise of the resurrection mentioned at Acts 24:15). Also during the days to come, may "Mama King's" sweet memories fill your hearts with joy and peace.

Thomas, Snellville, Ga.

So sorry for your tremendous loss. She was an incredible woman. We can all be thankful to her for one reason or another. You did all you could, and were there for her. . She knew that. She will be missed by many. Time is a healer. May God be with you all. She gave Him the glory. The Baly’s- FL and Costa Rico

It was a pleasure knowing mama king. Thank you Clint and Charlotte for sharing her with us. She was the most genuine, caring, honest person we've ever met. She will always hold a special place in my heart. So sad for everyone's loss.... REST IN PARADISE MARY ANN.

Shannon, Zach and Titan, Savannah , Ga

Your mother was such an awesome person. I remember meeting her for the first time “years ago” when I started working at the old Savannah High. Then not long after we became neighbor. She will be missed by many. Know that she was loved by many as well.

Wendy, Tybee, Ga

Sincere sympathy to Mary Ann's family. We were classmates, and I had the honor of being voted Most Dependable, along with her our Senior year. She was always kind, smiling, and a very sweet person. I have followed her courageous battle, and few could face illness as she did. May our Lord be with you.

Myot Akins, Fountain Inn, , S.C.

Mary Ann was loved by many and was an inspiration to all who knew her. She has left a wonderful legacy and will be sorely missed.

Libby Miller, Savannah, GA

Clint and Charlotte, May God wrap you in His arms so that you will feel comfort and peace that only He can provide you. Thank you for sharing your precious mom with me. She was kind in away that few people have the ability to be so kind. She did not fear death, she feared leaving the two of you. You were her world!! You were unbelievable in the way you cared for her when she could no longer care for herself!! God bless you both. You will remain in my prayers. Love you both!!

Cathy Turberville, Tybee Island, GA

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put in end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.
