To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

I have so many memories of Grandma Lemley. I am so sad to read about this but thankful for no suffering. Grandma Lemley and Grandpa Lemley took care of me one time when I was really little. She treated me like I was her own grandchild and cuddled with me and let me nap in the van. She spoiled me with some delicious cinnamon rolls and the best beef noodles I have ever had. When Russell passed her strength amazed me. As a Mom now I can't imagine the loss of a child. Though, she showed love and support to everyone else. I know in life I have gained and learned a lot from Grandma Lemley. I am thankful for all the times your family let us come to events. You will be missed give my uncle a hug from me and tell him he is missed. Tammy
