My Dearest Mother and Best Friend you will be forever in my Heart. I am so grateful for the last couple of years of getting reacquainted.

We had such Joy remembering the nostalgic moments. Especially, when you led me to your very old wicker purse which was loaded with your precious family photos. I saw Betty for the very first time. You both look alike even 10 years apart!

I am grateful I was able to prepare your favorite meals with the recipes you provided. Especially, the Cabbage, ham, potatoes, carrots, onions, and sweet corn bread. Yum!

I will be forever grateful for your Love, kindness, generous spirit and your love for Gospel music. I loved the times we fellowshipped with our Lord. Priceless!
You are the first one who taught me about Jesus, and John 3:16. And how you loved singing Jesus Loves me.

I think the most precious memory is when Nate (Who you often called your "Bright Spot") and I presented you with a Beautiful Bible on May 7, 2018.

And on March 27, 2019, I went into your room and found the Bible sitting on your bedside table. I opened it to see the words I printed. How would I had known you had left a message for me and Nate in the back.

I will fulfill every request and protect your Loving husband like a Mama Cougar.

Dance with the Angels my Dear Mother ❤️
Til we meet again...
Your loving daughter
