I had the fortune to know Bessie as my mother in law for 17 years
SHe was always quick with a warm smile and a hug. I’m so blessed to have spent many Sunday mornings with her at her church
And lunch afterwards. I will always cherish her friendship and good advice. You will be missed by so many who love you. I can’t help but to be happy for you though, because I know in my heart that you are with our Lord and Savior
Enjoy your mansion beautiful Lady!!!!

I don't know about tomorrow I just live from day to day I don't borrow from its sunshine for it might turn its sky to gray I know WHO holds the future and I know HE holds my hand Her struggles with the trouble of this world are concluded and she has gone on to be with the Lord Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord though they are dead yet shall they live She fought for many years to return to the presence of the Lord She made it to that blessed place I pass GOD'S peace to all of you and pray that HE continue to rain down HIS peace upon you Sleep on take your rest we love you but GOD loves you best
