Through her life we truly experienced the Love of God, the reality of the hope of Heaven and the joy of knowing the Salvation that Jesus Christ has prepared for us.

Her family requests that memorial donation be made in her name to First Baptist Church of Fernandina Beach, Florida.

Mom, Granny, Aunt Betty – In God’s hands you rest, in our hearts you live forever.

    My heart is broken for the family. Ms. Cason was a true Christian woman . She treated others the way she wanted to be treated. There arent words adequate enough to describe Ms. Cason.
    May her memory be eternal.
    Prayers to all.

    Maxine, I am so very sorry for the loss of your precious mother. You are very blessed to have a mother who loved the Lord and lived her life pleasing to Him. Although I did not know your mother and have not met you personally, I know your mother was also blessed to have you as her daughter. While listening to the beautiful hymn, “Be Thou My Vision”, while writing this, I realize what an example of God’s love you are to so many of us for your willingness to fight for our loved ones while going through this illness with your mom. Thank you for everything you do. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Mrs. Cason leaves behind a legacy that few are able to rise to. She was not only a devoted mother, but an example to all who were fortunate enough to cross her path. She discipled many and shared her love of Jesus and photography with all.. She will be remembered with fondness and missed greatly.
