I just want to say how honored I am to have been able to care for your mom. There are those that come in our lives and we know it's for a reason. From the moment we met we just clicked; I truly feel a void from her passing but I know she is right where God needs her to be for his plan is perfect. I pray God wraps you all in his loving arms and gives you peace and understanding only he can give. My deepest heartfelt sympathy goes out to each and every one of you. Thank you for sharing her with us. Keeping you all in my prayers for the days, weeks and months ahead.

I don’t ever recall when I was growing up to ever see Sister Ragon in a bad mood. She was always so sweet.
Heaven has definitely gained a crown jewel

Sister Ragon was a very special woman of God! She lived a great example of her Love for the Lord! She always had a smile for everyone and in all the 53 years of our friendship, we never failed to send each other a birthday card! I was just getting ready to go get hers for this year when I got the news she has passed! So sorry for your loss ! Praying for God’s Comfort, Peace and Strength in this time in Jesus Name! I love you all very much! Sister Liz Taylor
