I am so sorry for your loss. May the words of our loving heavenly Father bring your family comfort and strength during this most difficult time as He promises to bring our loved ones back to life in a perfect world where there will be no more suffering or death (John 5:28-29 & Revelation 21:4).

My grandma Bath, she always treated me as if I where one of her own. Family is not always blood. It is love. She will be missed very much.

To my cousins: I will always remember our trips to Maryland. It was my first chance to go to D.C. I thought it was so cool to live so close. My Daddy loved all his siblings and we enjoyed our visits to Pennsylvania and Maryland. Grandma did a remarkable job raising her children. She gave them all a deep religious faith that was important to all of them. I know you will all miss your beautiful mother. I can hear her laugh while Ricky teased her. It is unbelievable that my Daddy and Aunt Vernetta passed just one week apart. No matter their age, we are never ready to say good-bye. Grandpap and Grandma now have all their children with them and I hope they will look down on their 29 grandchildren and watch over all of us. Love to all the Bath Family,Carl and Noreen
