I have so many wonderful memories of Sis. Sellers from Lakedale Church of God. She was such a kind and and gentle person. She was a great example of what a christian lady should be. Now she has made it home. What a great reunion she is experiencing with her beloved Archie and her sweet mother along with so many other soldiers of the faith. To her family, please know that she is safe now.

Sister Sellers was a very dear and special friend. So thankful for the time we had together at Hope Mills PH Church. I loved her telling me about her life when she was younger, and really loved hearing how the Lord had blessed her all through the years. Sister Sellers was loved by all who knew her. So thankful that she is in heaven all well and happy with Jesus and many loved ones. We will be with you again sometime in the future, Sister Sellers! ❤️ Olivia

Sister Sellers is someone I will always remember as a prayer warrior, a woman of great wisdom, and an example of kindness. Since the days when she was my Sunday School teacher over 50 years ago, I have considered her a dear and trusted friend. "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints." Ps. 116:15
