Aunt Kat, I know you’re in Glory now rejoicing with family that’s went on before you. You’ve seen the Master face to face. I KNOW this because of a life well lived for God. Every time I saw you, you never changed. You ALWAYS had the sweetest most humblest spirit. I will treasure the times we shared either face to face or via phone. The world lost a beautiful soul. My prayers for comfort for the family left behind. Much love to you all. ❤️

You are the mother I received the day I wed your daughter. And I just want to thank you mom, for everything thing you’ve done for us. You given me a wonderful wife with whom to share my life. You are her kind and loving mother and I am her lucky husband. You used to hold and caress her and now that is left to me alone. You raised in love a beautiful girl and then gave me a beautiful woman. I will miss your smiles. Until we see each other again.

All my love,
Daniel
