  3. We will miss Pricilla and her beautiful smile but take comfort in knowing she is with the Lord rejoicing!

  4. We met Priscilla in church a week after being transferred to NAS Chase Field, Beeville, TX, in Oct of 1966. We quickly formed a friendship that has spanned fifty-five years and felt as close as family. A few days before she passed away we were able to tell her what a blessing she has been to us and how thankful we are that she was a part of our lives. She was one of God’s special people and will be greatly missed.

  5. Mrs Priscilla Lamar l already miss you. It was a pleasure being your caregiver l thank God for the opportunity to meet you, there will always be a special place in my heart for you……… your CiCi

  6. Momma, it’s been over a week since you went to be with The Lord and even after the funeral today, it doesn’t feel real. I keep picking up my phone to call you and then remember you are not here. I thank God for the gift of a Christian mother who loved us deeply and brought us up in church. I am glad you are no longer in pain and you are now strolling over Heaven but the loss will be with me forever. I love you. Kim

  7. Can’t count how many times I’ve started to text or call in the past two weeks. I can’t believe you’re gone but I’m so grateful you finally have found relief from your pain. Love you forever, Granny.
