Celebrating the life of Mary P. Sanders
Thank you for signing Mary P. Sanders's Guestbook
I am truly sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest and sincerest condolences and some words of comfort from God’s Word, the Bible.
Our merciful, heavenly Father sees and understands what you are going through and he is there for you to help you through this difficult time. (Psalms 121:1-3; 145:18, 19) So, please call upon and accept all the help from “the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials.” (2 Corinthians 1:3, 4)
Our loving God and Creator, Jehovah, did not intend for us to die, so he promises to reunite us with our loved ones who have fallen asleep in death. (Psalms 83:18; John 5:28, 29; Acts 24:15) Knowing you will see your dear Mary again will hopefully bring you a large measure of peace and comfort. I will also include you in my prayers.

My sincere condolences in the loss of Me Mary. She was a positive member of Springfield Community. She always asked after my Moma (Mary Gleaton), which was very thoughtful. She was a good Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandma. So loved by her family. I know she will be missed by all.

Dear Poole/Sanders Family, We are sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I learned a lot of positive things from Mary during our time as team members of the Springfield Rescue Squad. It was always good to visit with her during the Frog Jump. I remember Mary's smile. Take care and know your family is in our thoughts and prayers during this time of loss. May God bless you with comfort in the coming days. We love you, Debbie Berry, Melissa Poole, Jake and Shelby, Bobby and Daphne P. Goodwin, Michelle, Carrie Ann and Camille

So sorry for the loss of your mother. It seems like yesterday that she and I shared gossip on the street in front of Springfield's meeting place, the post office. We will all miss her.

I'll always remember our days of clogging in Springfield and what a fun person Miss Mary was!! She was quite a dancer and loved our group of clogging moms!! I would look forward to seeing her and watching her enjoy herself! She was proud of her wonderful family and loved talking about them! I know she'll be missed! Love to all the family!!
