August 1, 2020

My name is Jean Holloway the mother in law of Angela Holloway. Unfortunately I didn't know Mrs. Odessa Dawkins personally however I felt that I did because I know her daughter Angela who is my son Antoine's wife. To know Angela is to know her mother because of her beautiful spirit and character tells me that Mrs. Dawkins was an amazing mom. I am sadden to hear of your loss but just know that you all loved her but God loved her best . My prayers and love are with you and may you find peace and comfort in God's holy and pure word where He promises that He will never leave or forsake you according to the latter part of Hebrews 13:5.
In Christian Love,
Jean Holloway
