Amelia was my oldest living cousin. She was indeed a woman of faith. She prayed every single day upon rising and resting. Even though i don't get to Colorado often, i did get the chance to spend about 5 days with her 4 years ago. It was a beautiful reunion. I got to see her children and my other cousin Levi whom i probably hadn't seen since i was 16. With this visit I was able since then to connect with time with other family. To her and her faith i am grateful to have had her in my life. To all of her family I send my condolences. I tried to get there but unfortunately time didn't allow. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. My LOVE to all.
