To my momma, my hero! I loved telling you how much I loved you! I am so thankful I got to witness your home going. I prayed that God would allow me to be by your side even in this. It was a sad, but spectacular experience. Holy Spirit you were so amazing! Thank you, Sir! I love you my precious momma, and I would never call you back, but when Jesus comes back after each one of us, in his timing, I will see you, daddy, Jerry and all my little brother and sisters that didn’t make it to this earth, again! I know you are rejoicing and dancing with angels! I am so glad, no more suffering, no more pain. You have been made whole from head to toe! See you soon, momma, I love you! Carolyn
