She was the best mother to me and her life was a true example of sacrificial love, a heart of reconciliation and forgiveness, and a spirit of perseverance in adversity.I will miss her greatly, remember her fondly and look forward to seeing her again one day under the radiant presence of the Lord Jesus where there is no more sadness, sorrow, sickness, and pain...God bless you Mom over and over for how you blessed me and my family:)
