There are no words that can tell the story of my sister, who was a wonderful wife to my dear brother, a wonderful mom to some of the most beautiful young ladies I have ever known. Who was a dear friend to me all the years I knew her, she laughed at my silliness and cried when I lost my daughter.
Like crazy I’ll miss her on this side, but I know I will see my sister again, God’s word promise that we will never part again.
Until we meet again your brother in Christ,
