  • To the woods and Menzies family I send my deepest sympathy and condolences sincerely Jonathan matthews

  • Mrs. Milgret J. Woods was a jewel to our family, her church, and the community. She always had a kind word for me, my mother and aunts, my children, and grandchildren. She was always kind and generous to our family. For several years, she made it her business to bring food and snacks to my mother and aunts. At Christmas, she reached into her purse and gave to the fourth generation of my family making sure that my grandchildren had special gifts from her. Mrs. Woods was a giver. Most importantly about her was that she loved the Lord, and it showed in all that she did for others. She loved all people. In conversations with her, she always asked the right questions to try to better understand human behavior.

    To the family, a tree is known by the fruit it bears. Mrs. Woods bore good fruit. She was a good and faithful servant. May she rise in power, and may you always hold fond memories of her close to your heart. May the peace of Christ be with you all at this difficult time.

  • Milgret, was a beautiful person inside and out. May she rest in the beauty of holiness today. Family and friends believe in God’s Son, Jesus and you will see Him. Love those who are still here with you, Amen.

    The Ruffin Jarrett workers were very alert and knowledgeable about their rolls. The Hearse was beautiful. Also, the motorcycle leader was quite impressive by his maneuvering in the streets, stopping traffic. Mrs. Woods would have been quite pleased.

    All for the glory of God. ❤️🌹
