I so enjoyed knowing this sweet woman.
I believe she is with Argil and can see
all her loved ones who were waiting for
Miss Hez. God be with her family.
When I first started going to Knob Creek Church, Argil and Mrs. Hunt were there nearly every Sunday. He always held her hand, leading her to their pew on the left. Although she could not see us well, she was friendly and sweet to everyone. Her decline was sad to see, but now she is seeing with new eyes those things the Lord has prepared for her. Condolences to all the family.

So sorry for this loss. I've known the Hunts all
my life and loved them.

So sorry for your loss. Argil and Hez were my extended family. I loved them so much. My childhood is full of memories of being at their house. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
This saddens me beyond measure. Hez was the
truest and most honest person I have ever known.
She taught me many things years ago - things that
I still carry with me today. Though sorry she is
gone, we can be comforted knowing she has a knew
body now, and she is with family that has gone on
before her. I am sure they were waiting at the
gate to greet her! My deepest condolences to the
family - may you find comfort in knowing she is
free of all the pains she endured for years.
sadness for the family, but rejoicing for Hez as she is reunited with the love of her life, Argyle...many hours spent with her and Argyle...a blessing to know her and be able to spend time with her and Argyle. prayers for the family.
Though i have not seen aunt hez in a while; my
memories of her and the family are pleasant. Too
often we lose our way and touch with family in the
process of living life. Death is not an ending. We
should rejoice that we had time with her on this
earth. There is no pain to endure; or troubles or
toils for her to worry about. May she be embraced
in the loving heart of christ and may family find
solace in the friends, family, and memories of
Jarvis and Doris Barnett
Aunt Hez was a great Lady and will be missed .
Will be praying comfort for the Family as only God
can give. Love and Prayers Jarvis and Doris
