We will miss you mom and we love you so very much. You will remain in our hearts and we will meet you soon in your heavenly home.

Thanks for being our mom and thank you for teaching us the love of our Heavenly Father and his Word. “For thou art my hope, O Lord God: thou art my trust from my youth.” Psalms 71:5

Love you forever,

Your family.

    I’m so glade I found this, I’m one of her grandchildren from her youngest son. I hear so many wonderful stories from my dad about her. I wish I could’ve talked to her when I was a bit older but I know I’ll see her beautiful face in heaven🙏🏼
