I was so sadden to hear of Minnie’s passing. We worked side by side for many years in the Atlanta City Council office. We grew to become good friends and enjoyed going out to eat on Fridays for lunch at the Busy Bee. I had not seen Minnie for some time now but will always have those good memories with her while working. And she was so fond of her grandchildren. I know she will be missed.

I pray that you find comfort as you embrace every memory, that you smile at every thought when you reflect and that you find peace in knowing that she's at rest in the Father's bosom. May the Spirit of the Living God be with your family during this time and always.

Our prayers are with you and your family as you go through this difficult time but God will never leave you or forsake you. He will guide you and comfort you. God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain. Love Freddie Armond and Family
