You are such an amazing and inspiring person. You helped my daughter, Kari Alexander and I in so very many ways. Thank you for being a part of of our lives.

I didn’t get to know this lovely lady as I wished to when she and Bro Woolsey came to Truth Church, however, I knew that to know her would have been to love her. She had a sweet, gentle spirit. I hope to sit down with her by the river of life in the sweet bye and bye, sing the songs of Zion together, dance before the Lord and worship in his holy presence. We have a hope while living in this world. We have a promise. There will be a “Glad Reunion Day.”

My sweet sweet friend-I love you and know I will see you one day in the sweet bye and bye. You keep singing and smiling cause I know you are already brightening Heaven. You are loved by so many and wit ever be forgotten in my heart!
We cannot express enough how saddened we are. A wonderful life has now passed on. Our girls lives were fuller because of Marla Woolsey’s love and care in making their lives more special. We are better for knowing her.
Dear sweet Marla, I watched you grow in the Lord and it was a beautiful, natural, true and heartwarming sight. You never faltered for a minute. And now you have fought the good fight, honoring our Lord and Savior with every fiber of your being, and we know you are in the presence of the Lord right now.
I will miss you. You were my anchor when Michael was dying. Your voice was a comfort. I’ll never forget your joy in having a home with an outdoor kitchen. And I’ll never forget how proud you were of being married to Dennis, and how you two were an absolutely perfect pair who grew in the Lord together.
Oh Marla, you will always be a beautiful memory to me. So beautiful. I love you.
Your sister in law, Michael’s loving widow, Susan
I will miss our daily talks. I find myself about to call you. I have no one to help with my tech problems.
You were suppose to sing at my funeral, now here I am going to yours. This is not how it’s suppose to happen. Love you forever.
