    Mae was one of the kindest and sweetest people I have ever met in my 32 years in Winston-Salem. We sang together in the Centenary United Methodist Church Choir over the years, and she never failed to say a kind word or make me feel like she really cared. She was a great lady who I will really miss. My deepest condolences to the family on the loss of such a dear and special person.

    Mae Ross was a loving and caring person. She inspired me by raising her two children, Lynne and Barry, without the aid of her diseased husband. I remember her gracious hospitality at Christmas and New Year’s Day, with many delicious meals and bright, cheerful decorations. Mae had an infectious laugh, which I see reflected in both Lynne and Barry! I remember playing games, like Trivial Pursuit – particularly because Mae and I had one thing in common – we made everyone else look smart! Mae and I only won Trivial Pursuit when teamed up with either Lynne or George! I wish Mae could have joined us more often on trips to the Beach, but she was more content staying at home, taking care of her kitties and puppy dogs! Was there a cat or dog that Mae did not like? I don’t think so!
    I know that it is hard when a loved one passes away, for it took me about two years before I could think about my own mother without becoming emotional. I still miss my mother sometimes, but I can at least recall fond memories now, and smile. I loved that Mae sang in a choir, for like her, I am Christian. I know that God exists, and Jesus exists, and that we will all see Mae again, only next time, she will look like she did in her twenties – very young and beautiful. Mae’s beautiful, loving and kind spirit will live in our hearts and memories forever.

    I just wanted to express my deepest sorrow for your loss. I know it’s so hard parting ways with our dear loved ones. No doubt this is a very difficult time for you all, but please draw comfort from the fact that soon our Heavenly Father has promised to make death “no more”, here on Earth, and also to bring back our loved ones that have already “fallen asleep” so that we have the chance to be reunited with them (2Cor 1:3,4 Rev 21:3,4 John 5:28,29 & 1 Thess 4:14). Again, please accept my condolences
