Mary Riley was a dedicated supporter of her husband's mission and did her part to serve those who served the nation by caring for and supporting the spouse's and families of those service members under Col. Riley's many commands. We will miss her greatly but rejoice in her salvation through Jesus Christ and her arrival into the arms of God the Father.
I'm sorry for your loss, Harry. I will keep you and your family in my prayers...
Sorry for your family's loss,may god bless
Mary was such a supporter of our cause. She will be greatly missed. My prayers are with you Col Riley, and your family. May God bless.
Dear Col. Riley,
I am saddened to hear of the passing of your mother. She sounds like she was a great person, wife and mom.
My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.
Have you ever seen a more wholesome-looking couple than Col Riley's parents? I now know how his depth of character was formed. God Bless your family, Col Riley, and may He provide comfort during this sad time.
To you, Kathie, my deepest condolences on the loss of your mother; to you Harry, my "Brother in Arms", though you have in your service lost comrades, your greatest loss of a loving wife is the hardest one, your right arm. My sincere and deepest condolences and prayers for you and your family. May God be with you all.
To everyone here on this PFA Forum,, Please be aware that this is Col. Harry Riley's WIFE, Not his mother that we are referring to.
I thank you all for being so kind and caring about Col. Riley and his family. And - Yes, I do understand how the original post of this thread can be mis-interrupted, It was posted by Kathey, Col Riley's Daughter,, And yes,,,SHE is the one who stated that HER MOTHER had passed away. Kathey's Mother, Col Riley's wife..................
Again, Please, I thank you all very much, as I know Harry Riley does also. And no one is criticising for a simple and understandable error.
God Bless You both Mary and Harry! Thank for standing for everything Christian Americans STAND FOR!
So sorry to hear of your Mom's passing.
Thanks for posting Forrest, Mary Riley was Col Riley's WIFE, not his mother. I'm sure he appreciates your thoughts though. The article was posted here by Kathey, Harry and Mary's daughter hence the word "Mother".
Sorry for the error.
I'm sorry for your loss, Col. Riley.
The best thing you can do to honor your wife's memory is to keep making her proud of you.
