She Gave to all of us along this journey in life. She has contributed to all of us being the men and women we have become. It is with great honor to see the Godly woman she was and how she has lead other as well to believe...she has sown many seeds and water many more along her journey. And as she is Graciously walking the streets of gold in heaven...all is well with her soul for now she is with the Lord. As she took my hand in this life and helped me along the way, it was a blessing to hold her hand during her last days here. Until we meet again you are an AMAZING WOMAN

You have taught me of the passage of time; and how time could stand still every Sunday. Every Sunday, since I was ten, we shared a cup of tea and reflected on the day. We did this even after Uncle Sonny passed, and though you are among the stars now, Sunday will forever be immortal. I love you so much, more than words could know. You have taught me to be the woman who I am today. You, too, are immortal.
