  • For years Creta sat behind us in church. We loved hearing her sing and occasionally harmonize. We miss her and her beautiful voice. We know she has joined the heavenly choir. Jane and Dwight beougher

  • We were sorry to read about the passing of Creta. We enjoyed chit chatting with her while doing yard work. She will be missed. With heartfelt sympathy, Greg and Kaila Talbott (neighbors across the street).

  • Tom and Steven, Bonnie enjoyed singing with Creta in the choir for many years, and as a former pastor, I (Jim) appreciated her devotion to her church. I am sorry that a medical test scheduled for that day prevents our attendance at the service.
    Jim and Bonnie

  • To the Frye family Our deepest sympathies go out to the family. I want to share with you a comforting promise from God, that he has given us at John 5:28,29 it gives us hope in seeing our loved ones again, he feels the pain we go through.”Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come, out those who did good things to a resurrection of life.” It wasn’t God’s purpose for us to experience death so he is going to fix that problem soon.

  • Tom – We were very sad to hear of your mother’s passing. I know how very much you loved her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
