My condolences to the family an a blessed day to each, and everyone for strength, hope, joy, peace, and love in this time and always. Just want to say I thank God for the visiting moments that I was able to sit, sing, and to have prayer with such an awersome strong, & loving believe of God. She share & show me strength in what it is to have a close connection with the Lord in any circumstances, and for that is what I will hold on to as I continue to life up all her family, and love one in this time of her departure for this earth, but not with her heavenly Father.
Thank you for allowing me to share my thoughts, and time about such a loving mother, sister and friend in Christ Jesus.
