I am so sad to hear of your moms passing. I’ve known her for over 35 years. We attended nursing school together and years later worked together at Faulkner. Over the past 10 or so years I became closest to her. Though I did not see her we often shared our faith in the Lord with each other. She loved Jesus and was a true woman of faith. The Bible says.to be absent in the body is to be present in the Lord. In a twinkling of An eye she was home with Him. I pray it brings you some comfort in knowing that in Christ you will be indeed reunited again. She is home now. So hard for us left here this side of heaven. I know how much she cherished you and your children. I will be praying for the Lords Comfort and Grace to you. I loved your Mom and I look forward to seeing her again in our heavenly home♥️

Auntie holds a special place in many of our fondest childhood memories. From handmade Halloween costumes and prom night makeup to sleepovers, campouts, and beach days too plentiful to count, we’ll forever remember her wonderful talents, fun-loving spirit, and generous heart.

Rest in peace, Auntie. We love you.
