Christopher and family,

A mother holds her children’s hands for a while, their hearts forever.

Chris, you have been at your mother’s side, taking care of her and attending to her every need. You have interacted with the doctors and nurses in order for your sweet mother to receive the best of care. The hours that you spent with her were precious and she appreciated everything that you did for her. You are a good son! She loved you dearly. She is now at rest.

I have only known your mom for 13 years, but she was a class act and a fine woman. She was a good neighbor and a faithful friend. I would see her coming back from her volunteer work at Huntsville Hospital in her pink uniform and despite being tired, she always had a gracious smile and warm hello. She will be sorely missed.

Author John Milton once said of his own mother “Grace was in all her steps, heaven in her eye, in every gesture, dignity and love.” Truer words could not be spoken of your own sweet mother.

Wishing you peace to bring comfort, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in your hearts.

In Rememberance,
Charlton “Chip” and Alicia MonCrief, Huntsville, AL

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have been visiting Magnolia Trace every week for the past two years. I always saw Mrs. Philip's son Christopher faithfully visiting his mom. Such a rare occurrence these days, to see children so devoted and involved with their parents care. It was refreshing. I know she will be missed. God feels for you in your pain. Psalm 34:18
