Because of my Grandmother's passing, I've taken time to reflect on the blessings our famiy has and still continue to have because of my Grandparent's living testimony. They showed us what it means to love God, be faithful, and to cherish family. I will forever miss you Grandmomma, mostly your hugs and laughter, but we will all be together again rejoicing the Lord's victory!
To my famiy: I am sad I am unable to come home during this time, but my heart is with you. I love you all.
