Miss Daisy was a special lady! My brother, James, and I spent our summers at VBS at the CCC of Christ and we will always remember her sitting behind the piano. We loved her dearly and always will. We thank God that He allowed her to pass through our lives. As my Pastor said once, "It's okay to go home!" She did just that! She will always be remembered fondly by us. Thank you for sharing her with us!

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Daisy. Although there are many memories from growing up so close together I cherish most the Sunday mornings she played piano at church. She will be missed.

"Daisy" was one of the real sweethearts that you are fortunate enough to know in life. She was a true friend, and a wonderful example of how one should live their life. My prayers are with her husband Pete, and the rest of her family! May God bless you!

Pete, Our prayers are with you. Let us know if there is anything that we can do for you. Take care of yourself. Love, Shelia Combs

Daisy was such a special person. She took me under her wing when I begin teaching at LMS. I became one of the "Dream Team". Everytime I had a question or concern I went to Daisy. She took care of everything! I will miss her dearly. She also had such a caring way with the students as she did with the staff. My deepest condolences to the family.

To Pete and especially the immediate family of "Daisy"...we send our sincere sympathy...It goes without saying, but worth repeating time and again what a wonderful person "Daisy" has been all her life through. Our class of '63 (LHS)has lost a Jewel...she was a shinning star of our class...I am so thankful we got to spend time with her at the 45th class Reunion...we will miss her gracious spirit... Roger, I wish I could be there with you all...You and Daisy mean so much to so many people...please know we have all of you in our prayers...and offer to do whatever we can to lessen your sorrow...Amos 5:8 is my favorite vs in times of loss..."It simply says, "Seek Him who maketh the seven Stars and Orion...and turneth the shadow of Death into the Morning...The Lord is His Name... We send our love and prayers...
