With determination to provide genuine comfort during this difficult moment the Horton Family has been charged with the solemn duty to advise all that Mrs. Beatrice Whidbee Coleman better has “B” permanently changed her address to 777 Highway 7,  in that beautiful city called Heaven as of January 3,2020.

The heartbreaking task of planning the Life Remembering services for Mrs. Coleman have been finalized and will commence on Friday evening January 10,2020 from 6pm until 8pm for moments of reflection and Viewing at Hortons Funeral Home and Cremations. Mrs. Coleman’s family will climax her life remembrance with a “Loving Farewell” Ceremony on Saturday January 11,2020 at 2pm at Greater Saunders Grove Baptist Church with Bishop Landon Mason, officiating. Immediately following the services in the sanctuary Mrs. “B” remains will be escorted to the Doziers Thicket Cemetery for internment services. As hard as it will be for Mrs. Coleman’s loved ones to depart without her, God our Heavenly Father promised to give peace that will surpass all of our understanding even in the midst of grief and sorrow. The hymnologist said it best... when he put pen to parchment writing.... “We’ll understand it better all by and by.”

The compassionate professionals at Horton’s Funeral Homes and Cremations are working around the clock to ensure that the Coleman and connected families every need is attended too.
