Pastor Kevin G. & Lady Svette Rushing & United Baptist Church Ministries left a message on October 5, 2022:
To the Family of Mother Gloria Bethune, Words will never be able to convey the pain that we feel. Mother Bethune was a classy woman of God who didn't mind letting you know that she was a child of God. Her presence will be deeply missed but take comfort in knowing that the Word of God says to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. We the United Church family extends our heartfelt condolences to the family. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. We are just a call away if there is anything we can do to help make this transition a little easier to bear don't hesitate to call on us and we will be there to answer the call. Pastor Kevin & Lady Svette Rushing & the Officers & Members of United Baptist Church.

The Family of Marie, we always called her that as we grew up on Brady Avenue and Wunderlich in Barberton, we were such good friends. The Pittman and Neloms were good friends as well. My condolences to Robert and the rest of the family. My prayers are for God to give you strength at this time and remember the good times. I will remember the fun we shared. Mary Neloms Jones Columbus, OH.
