  1. Rest In Peace ms greb You will be missed I loved you so. You were the best neighbor for 21 years🙏🏻❤️❤️

  2. Miss Mabel was one of the most precious ladies I have ever known. A kind, patient, and considerate Christian sweetheart. Condolences to the family.

  3. Friends are the best way to fill memories with joy and laughter. I will forever hold the memory of Mabel in my heart. I will cherish the many times we shared a meal together. The fun and laughter at BUNCO or card games. The fellowship of being together in church. My phone calls when I moved from Crockett to Ft. Worth. I will miss seeing her name pop up on my computer watching a sermon together and her saying less than two weeks ago, how much she enjoyed my church Christmas program. Mable was a beautiful person who loved her Lord, her family, and her friends. Life was made more beautiful by her sweet friendship. Viva Marie Miller

  4. Mabel will be missed but she is with Jesus now. How glorious! She was a wonderful lady who loved the Lord and was special to all who had the privilege to have known her. We, the Cross family, loved Ms. Mabel and will remember her fondly.

  5. Mabel was a fine Christian woman and I was fortunate to have her as a friend. I will remember her fondly. Enjoyed being in Sunday School and church with her. Listening to her pray was my pleasure. We enjoyed many activities together and also good phone conversation! May God bless her family 🙏.

  6. Dearest Carol, Linda and Families,

    Mabel was loved dearly by so many because she gave out that same love. I have so very many wonderful memories of her and Kenneth as I was able to come along side them as they served their Lord lovingly and enthusiastically.

    I am so sorry and sad that I will not be able to be at your precious mom’s home-going celebration – I have another funeral in Houston that I must attend. Please know that I am thinking of you and praying for you at this difficult time and sharing in the loss of your sweet sweet Mabel. May the arms that welcomed her into heaven be the same arms that hold your heart today.

  7. My husband Steve and I are long-time friends of Carolyn Kendrick so we met “Aunt Mable” through Carolyn. We crossed paths with her on several occasions when we attended family events hosted by Carolyn. We were even privileged to visit her and Kenneth at their home in Monahans years ago. She was a sweet and loving lady and I know she will be greatly missed by her family and friends. May God comfort you in your time of sadness.
