Celebrating the life of Nancy B. Fulghum
Thank you for signing Nancy B. Fulghum's Guestbook
I am so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible. (Acts 24:15; John 5:28,29) Those who are raised to life will have the prospect of never again being subject to misery, sickness, or death. (Revelation 21:4) I hope that reflecting on these thoughts will give you some relief during this difficult time.

I was saddened, and shocked, to read of Mrs. Fulghum's death. I think that the one memory of her was her Lunaria bush, or Money Plant. I remember many years ago, sitting in your den, and, with her, removing the pods from these plants, and "making money," as she said, with humor. Mrs. Fulghum gave me some to take home, and I remember my Mom placing them in our home. A good memory!
You have my sincere sympathy.
