Condolences

Condolence From: Teresa Kay Cameron Webb
Condolence: O how my mind is flooded with so many precious and wonderful memories of My Name Sake -- Mila "Kay" Robertson Herring. With each precious memories, I just praise God thanking Him for blessing me with an amazing, awesome, smart, beautiful Aunt and O how thankful I am and how it is an honor to be given her name -- "Kay." And yes throughout the years when My Name Sake and I talked that is what we called each other -- "MY NAMESAKE. Even now I can hear her sweet voice and that laugh. And those famous words of hers -- "I LOVE YOU TO THE MOON AND BACK." It was she who started that with her kids, her husband, her family and with me. The last time My Name Sake and I talked it was on her birthday, her special day, November 27, 2017, with us telling each other how much we love each other and if God calls her home at that very moment or when He does we both will know that we know that we truly love each other without any doubts. YES, I CAN SAY -- MY NAMESAKE -- LOVED ME AND IT IS THAT LOVE THAT HELPS ME GET THROUGH THESE MOMENTS OF KNOWING SHE IS NOT HERE. And as we talked that day, we both share how we will see each other again and o what a glorious day that will be.
Thank you Lord for each precious moments you bless me to have with her, to share with this amazing beautiful awesome woman. A precious moment in time -- I was spending the night with My Name Sake and cousins [Les, David, & Cheryl]. James was working nightshift, and we 5 were up just about all night laughing, playing records -- MUSIC, singing and o yes dancing. It was she who taught me how to do the "Pony" the "Mashed Potatoe" -- yes dances that were done in her younger years. And it was because of her is why I do so love to dance. My Name Sake loved you with an unconditional heart; she saw past your faults and uplifted you when you were down. She did not have a judgmental heart and by no means was she ever negative or let negativity be shown or spoken because of her faith and her love for our Lord. Not only was she a God fearing woman, but O how she loved to talk about our Lord. I can say I am truly blessed to come from a family that loved our Lord and no matter where we are at we will let our light shine and believe me she as well as my mom and her sisters have let their light shine brightly along with my grandma, her mom. I can also say she loved her kids and always spoke nothing but loving words, praises of each of her kids and grandchildren and yes even her great. As I am typing this another precious moment in time comes to mind. I rode with Daddy and Mama to go visit my grandparents [we lived here -- Lucedale, MS -- Kay's parents -- who lived in Alabama. At this time Kori my oldest daughter was only 6 months old. As I was sitting in the living room being amazed of how Grandpa spoke repeatedly of how he loved Kori and that Kori could stay with him [and those who knows Almon Robertson -- those words were not spoken very often or none at all]; well upon this day I was sitting there talking with Grandpa and he was asking me about what kind of work did Mike (my hubby) did, to which I said, he was a truck driver. And as I was sharing this with him, I proudly shared with him of how I can drive an 18 wheeler. When I finish he shared with me of how his daughter, "Kay knew how to fly a plane, an even knew how to drive a motorcycle." O how you could hear the proudness in his voice for his daughter. And he spoke highly of how Kay could work on a vehicle and even paint vehicles. In fact, he said that when Kay and Ann were at home, Kay would be outside with him under the hood or under the car helping him. I shared this with mama, and her response was there are not too many times that her dad spoke of proud words for his kids and when he did, he meant it. I know that My Name Sake knew how to knock out walls to make a bedroom for her lil girl (at that time) or how she painted James (her husband) truck with using a paintbrush. The paint job looked professional. Just a few days before the Lord called My Name Sake home, I was going through some stuff that was mama's and came across copies of poems that My Name Sake wrote and of course you could tell that they were written after her dad, my Grandpa passed way in Oct 1987. Before I share that poem, let me share this -- as I was looking for that poem that My Name Sake wrote for her Dad, I came across a letter that she written to my Mom dated Sept 21, 2011, in this letter she is uplifting my mom. Her letter starts off saying "Tell the Devil today he is a liar he will not take my joy, my peace or disturb my spirit and then she shares the story "Little Jelly Beans" She shares about the colors of the jelly beans and what they represent when it comes to our Heavenly Father; By the way, she wrote this letter at 4 am and on the back of the envelope addressed to my mom she wished her "sis" a "happy birthday." The poem about her dad she talks about a beautiful flower garden, God's flower garden, and how it needed a special rose and that rose was her dad. My youngest daughter has this same talent of writing poems or stories that touches the deepest part of your heart. So I will close with God's beautiful flower garden, as My Name Sake wrote; for He needed another special rose and that is My Name Sake -- Kay. Kay thank you. Dear Father thank you for this very special, beautiful ROSE. I will see you again My Name Sake as well as my Mom (Ruth - 7/30/2016) my Dad (Dan -2/28/2016) and my brother (Dale - 5/16/2017). Tears are flowing with sadness but with joyfulness as well because I know that I know I will not only see My Name Sake but also my mom, dad, brother, and other families who are in heaven with our Lord. I love you Kay.

Condolence From: Angela Herring
Condolence: Kay has been in my life since I was 7. I have many great memories that include her and the whole Herring family. One of my greatest blessings came from her and that is her son David. I’ve always thanked her for raising my soulmate. She raised him to be the kind of husband and father he should be and we are so blessed because of her. She would always tell me how proud she was of me on how well I took care of David and our boys. I hope I continue to make her proud! Even though we didn’t always see eye to eye I really couldn’t ask for a better mother in law. I love you Kay and I will do everything I can to make sure David is ok as we all go through the pain of losing you. We love you and will miss you! Love you “mom”!
