My (our) hearts were saddened for y’all in the passing of your loved one, who was indeed loved by so many others, as well! But, at the same time, God sent His Angels to take her to her Heavenly home, peacefully, which was a blessing! My prayers are with you all, especially those of you who were with her each day, taking care of her through all of her sickness & grief, as y’all were also experiencing.
I wish I could attend her service, which I know will be a beautiful one; but due to sickness, I’ll not be there physically but will be in heart!
Love & prayers,
Wanda, Allen & Kendall
