|The dictionary defines "LEGACY" as something coming from an ancestor or predecessor. Micah 6:8 states: "He has showed you O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act JUSTLY and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God." J|
"A year has passed since our family lost Cousin J.L. He was truly special because of his deeply abiding love and devotion to family. J.L. loved and served the Lord daily, and I rejoice that he no longer knows pain or sorrow, and I aspire to join him in praising God one day...a joyful reunion! The Hargrove Family remembers J.L. with great pride; we were blessed to call him cousin."
"Cindy and family, Reading Cindy's heartfelt, accurate description of J. L. Akridge prompted me to share my fondest memory of this special man. After several years, my comatose mom was released from her bondage. J.L., a Hargrove cousin, was among the first to call the funeral home to express his condolences to me and my dad. This comforting gesture is permanently etched in my memory. J.L. and my mom shared a great love of family, love of God and dedication to the field of education. Through ensuing years I have enjoyed Christmas cards and other communications with J.L. and Vada. J.L. is definintely a man to be admired and emulated."
"Cindy, Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful tribute to your father. Since we have shared some genealogy information with one another, I feel as if are closely connected. Your words about your dad rang so close to my heart as I think about my precious mother. Although your father's voice is still it continues to live in your heart just as my mother's is with me always. My love and sympathy for your loss, Anita"
