I met Beth Pigg about fifteen years ago, when I came to Tennessee, and met Mr. Hubert Pigg, who is distantly related to me. He took us to the Buchanan Cemetery and helped us find the grave of my ggg granmother. WE met both Mr. Pigg, and his wife and Beth. She was very welcoming and cheerful, as was the whole family. I have not been back and do not know any of Beth’s family. I have spoken to Jolene on telephone. She and her husband were out of town the day we met Mr. Pigg and went to the cemetery. I know this is a very sad time for Beth’s aunts, uncle and cousins. I send my deepest sympathy. My husband died in 2016 and I doubt I will get to come to Tennessee again, but I have fond memories of visiting there many times. My gg grandmother was Dilly Pigg Ellis of Delina.
Randall and Jolene,
Mike and I are so very sorry for your loss and will be remembering you and the rest of the family in prayer!
Jolene, Janice and Woody, I will always cherish the sweet moments shared with Beth. She sure could make you smile!

I am sorry for your loss, please accept my sincere condolences. I hope the family will find some comfort and strength in Jesus promise of the earthly resurrection(Acts 24:15)and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will mourn the death of a loved one.-Revelation 21:3,4;John 5:28,29;Luke 23:43. may GOD(Psalms 83:18)grant you peace and comfort now, during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.
