I rejoice with you that Mrs. King is with her Lord and I thank God for her sweet godly example when I was in the choir of Abbeville Presbyterian church. May God comfort you at this time.

Sara Jane and Chester: So sorry to hear about Ms. King. Big Chester and your mama meant so much to all of us. Dee and I spent many a Sunday night listening to your mama laughing at Big Chester's silly jokes.. " Ham and Podna" made an unusual pair. It was always so much fun when the Kings came over. And your mama must have had the patience of Job listening to all the tykes with their questionable piano skills! She was a beautiful and special lady. She'll always have a special place in the McDill family's heart. Take care. Boofie

Chester and family, I am saddened to hear of the passing of your mom. She was a dear, sweet lady, whom I loved dearly. I know that she was ready for this journey on earth to be over and that she looked forward to seeing her Lord. She was a blessing to me while she was at Carlisle. I saw her on Wednesday and knew that her time was coming soon. I pray for God to bless you with His peace and comfort you with His love. Love you all. Ruth
