Condolences for Barbara Jane Flowers

Dear “Sweet “ Eddie & family, I just found out about your mama’s passing, my Aunt, during the weekend via a phone call from Deleon’s wife, Beth. At that time, she didn’t have any facts but she called me again about an hour ago & told me her memorial service was to be held this coming Friday. I had tried to look up her obituary the other day but it wasn’t posted on line; but I just found it under Wilmington Funeral & Cremation. You & your wife (I feel she may have helped) did a wonderful write-up honoring Aunt Barbara Jane. I surely wish that I could have talked (I did try to call her many times but never an answer) with her just 1 more time or had seen her!! We were very close when we were younger. Allen (my husband) & I would go down & visit them when she & your dad (& you) lived at Seagate….we always had a good time together! Your daddy was a very kind, sweet & gentle man; my dear brother, Deleon & I (along with our spouses) always enjoyed your parents company!! I’ve been told that I resemble your mama some & had some actions alike….that’s a compliment! Yes I deed, you were your mama’s “little man”…Eddie, you were loved so very much by your parents; you have always been such a wonderful young man growing up. I know you will miss her greatly but she is now in the presence of her Heavenly Father & Jesus Christ, her Savior & Lord; she’s also with your daddy & some other family members…she is celebrating now & is no longer having any pain or suffering! I certainly hope & pray that I’ll be able (if my MS allows my body to do so) to attend her service. Please take care & remember that you are lived, even though we may not get to see each other! -Wanda
