Handwritten *Will* or last wishes of Eula Mae Roper:
I want to be buried at Riverside Cemetery - Hopkinsville (Not near the River) with Fuqua Funeral home in charge.
I only want a passage of Scripture read with prayer by the Pastor of my Church, First Baptist.
I only want Red Roses for the Pall, and request the friends contribute to the Mental Health Association, and the Foundation for the study of Kidney Diseases.
Flowers and love contributed during my life time meant more to me than anything said or done after I am gone.
(signed) Eula Mae Roper
Hand written notes by Eula Mae Roper:
Without renewed strength and love from my Heavenly Father during all my years of illness, I wouldn't have had the courage to go on.
I always knew the Lord understood and was with me. The hurts were great, but "Forgive them Father, they couldn't know".
Next to my Lord, the love for my dear family was uppermost. How I have loved them.
Thanks Lord for those friends and family who loved me and gave of themselves for me.
Thanks for a husband like Justin. (This would be Edwin Justin Roper)
