    Sometimes we lament about the death of others and rightfully so. And because we have never experienced the joy and peace of heaven we long to remain on earth. But God took her home to be with him. To be in a better place. To be in a place where pain and hurt and sickness cannot exist. If she’s with her maker she is home in good company. Let us rejoice and celebrate her life. She was loved and she loved people.

    It is so difficult to express the sadness that I feel presently. We called ourselves sisters, we both worked with children at school and our church ministry ,children again, I am Sunday School she is the Youth ministry.We just truly bonded. She promised me she would be back in my office to talk and said I have much to tell you .I am so sad, but She Loved the Lord God Almighty.She Loved her Family.She was so compassionate.This is really hard.
