As we said hello to 2019, I did not expect it to bring the loss of my mom from this age. Thankful for a loving family that she gave life to, and introduced His life to. She leaves a mantle so heavy it will take all 4 of her children and extended family to live up to. Today I celebrate her, as she is celebrating eternal life with my Lord, surrounded by my dad, her parents, and many other powerful witnesses to our Faith. Thank you Lord for my Momma.

Mom, you received me into the family over 20 years ago with open arms. Your grace, and your relationship with the Lord was always an inspiration for us all. As you draw close to Jesus, I will be thinking of you and missing you so much! I know that you are in His loving arms.
Until I see you again...
I love you
