I miss you so much and I do not believe that will change until we are together again in Glory. You gave me so much spiritually and you were such an encourager of the ministry that the Lord has given me and you always believed in me even when others did not. I miss our long talks and the Godly wisdom that you were always able to provide. I felt your love and your support and knew it was from your heart for you truly heard from the Spirit. You were always telling me to write "that book." Well, I am working on it as I promised you I would. I look forward to that sweet "hug" that only you could give and I know we will have many, many more. Until then I will miss you and think about you and love you forever. Have fun dancing with Jesus! See you soon "mom"!

I’ve been thinking over the passed couple days of how best to describe my relationship with DD and how I will always remember her. And I believe that 1st Corinthians chapter 13, verses 4 - 8 does it best. “ Love is patient, Love is kind, It does not envy, it does not boast it is not proud. It is not rude, It is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices in the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. DD was the most selfless person I have ever known. The only person I know that when asked if she was Alright, her response was simply, No I’m half Left. She never really answered he question because her main concern was for those around her. She gave 100 %, without expecting anything in return. I am grateful to have had as much time with DD as I did and the opportunity to make great memories.Most of all, I am grateful to have had a grandmother who truly embodied all 4 verses of 1st. Corinthians.
