Mrs. Compton's life was a testimony of the goodness of Jesus, that kept her until her last day.
She sang the words to songs of faith after age had removed other details in memory. She called on her Lord daily, praying to Him to have mercy. In her last days she would repeat that she wanted to go "home", I'd tell her so did I but looking back I don't think she was talking about a Louisville address near Mrs. Pat. I believe she was talking about "Home" that has streets paved with gold, and a crystal sea. I believe the "Home" she was referring to was a building not made with hands - eternal in the Heavens!
Mrs. Compton was a PRAISER and on November 19th she received her ticket to go "Home"! She was so excited she wrote this letter: "Lorraine-I made it! I am so happy, I was shouting so much I don't remember which gate I went in, but I wanted to thank you for how you took care of me, Baby Sister, I'm gonna miss our walks and talks but you keep on keeping on! Caryl Ann thank you for your encouragement and for being the "Enforcer " to make sure everything was going right for me.
Bug, you are in charge of making sure your sisters are ok. Stay close and love one another. To all my grandkids I send you my love and a reminder for you to love the Lord and do good and He'll be with you as He has been with me down through the years.
Well I must go, Corrine and I have plans today! I love you all..."

From the time Momma asked you to show her how to take care of 'This Little Girl'...I was your Baby Girl. I will truly, truly, truly miss you.

Big Moma : You were MORE than a Grandma. The air that I breathed, The
food that I ate from birth we shared almost everyday. From Chicago, Harvey to Louisville, Ky you made sure I didn't want or need for anything. We have shared so many many happy memories and those I will cling to for the rest of my life. They are so precious that I won't ever forget them. One of my favorite and fondest memories that we shared and occasionally laughed about was the time you called my mom and told her " you had cooked 15 pieces of liver and smothered them with onions " . Moma's
mouth was watering for some of that DELICIOUS liver. When she arrived home and you and I had ate all 15 pieces
Moma was upset and you told her that
"We couldn't stop eating it ". Then you
and I laughed. Rest In Heaven Big Moma
You Will Be Terribly Missed. LOVE You Eternally . Man 🙏💕💯
