Joyful/sad tears today. Joyful because I know Mrs. Booth is in the arms of God, free from all sickness and hurt. Sad because she's not here to go to when I need a strong prayer warrior. I met her in 1967 when she walked into Rice Academy Beauty College and all the other girls ran to the back, leaving me to get her as a client to work on. She had such thick hair that no one wanted to do her hair. That thick head of hair brought us together every week and eventually going to church at Faith Assembly for years together. For years my two daughters and I went to Mr. and Mrs. Booths prayer meetings every Friday night in their home, where amazing miracles took place. She and I have prayed over our children and grandchildren together countless times and she soon taught me what unwavering faith brings. I have to many miracle stories to share from our precious time together, pouring out our hearts desires to the Lord (she would always say where two or three are gathered together I am in their mist; you, me and Jesus makes three.) I will always cherish the memories we had together because "NOT ONE" was ever without the presence of the Lord. I lost my Mother when I was 30 years old. Oh how Mrs. Booth and I prayed for her healing, but even though miracles took place the Lord wanted her home with him. After loosing my Christian Mother, it was a blessing to have a fine Christian woman still in my like. I will be forever thankful for the Lord bringing Mrs. Booth into my life. Those girls who ran from her thick hair will never know what they lost and I gained. I love you Mrs. Booth. I'm thankful you are dancing with our Jesus! Well done! Give my Mother a hug from me and I will see you both soon.

I have so many sweet memories of Aunt Peggy and Uncle Bill and their family. They visited many times in our home as I was growing up and then also with my husband, Sherman, and I. Aunt Peggy glowed with the love of Christ and was an encouragement to us in our faith journey. Still remember our visit a few years ago at her care facility. As she walked, she shared the gospel along with her sweet smile with the staff and residents. Margaret, Bill and Marilyn, your mom was special. Sherman and I send our love and condolences. Andi Huff
