Cherry you have such a beautiful soul and you will be so very missed by many. Loved our time working together at United. I will forever be so thankful for all the prayers you prayed for Dennis and I. I know you are enjoying some heavenly treasures for helping us rebuild our journey with the Lord. You were such a part of all that GOD did in our lives during our time at Bethel Assembly. I am truly grateful for your prayers that led to both of us finding true SALVATION in Jesus Christ! I remember when you use to tell me I know you are a quite church mouse but its okay to have fun at church!!!! Till we see you again enjoy your reward!!
