My Aunt Edna was a woman who faithfully served the Lord, and had a lot of love in her heart for everyone; especially her children, and all her relatives and friends. I remember when she got saved. Her heart was so filled with the joy of her salvation---she could hardly stop laughing for several days. But, she got far more than just a laugh. She received a love for the Lord that lasted all these years. We can only imagine the blessed reward she came into when the Lord took her home. When it's our turn to go home, we'll hear that laugh again. She'll know every one of us by name, and we'll never part again! What a thought!

I have known Sister Tulip for many years and she always had a smile. She was a thoughtful, kind woman of faith. She worked hard and was a good example to all who knew her. She touched many lives and has left lasting memories.
