To The Parham Family
This is my final goodbye to cousin Hildred Hoosier Parham:
An Angel name Hildred held my hand, wiped away my tears and helped me to understand that our time on earth is brief, and there is a lesson to be learned. Know that each precious day God gives us another page to turn in the chapter of life that will be full of memories, great times of joy, some with tears, triumps and defeats through every passing year.
I can hear my cousin Hildred saying to her children I have an unconditional love for my children, and I will always be by your side, and for my dear husband Charlie for 60 years, I love you for loving me and producing the beautiful children we produced, that produced my grand and great children that blessed me on this life journey. My life on earth was beautiful.
I smile as I think of cousin Hildred, as she was well known for her beautiful and warm smile and I know that when no one else would listen, in cousin Hildred would listen and you could confide within her and feel the peace of the Lord within.
With gentle words of wisdom, Hildred led her family and so many others on their way down the path of righteousness and if ever one would stray she was faithful to God doing God's work with her guiding light.
Hildred saw the light in everyone and gave with no regrets and always from her beautiful heart.
Angels come in many forms, to many, Hildred is one of those Angels, as I truly can say that with some of the pages I turn in my own personal life and going into my own woman and motherhood Hildred was big and major part in some of my darkest days where she gave time and love to me and made me feel like I was one of her own beautiful children.
I say to the entire Parham family: Charlie Jr, Katherine, Charles, John, Cinder, Ricky, Debra, Buddy cousin Regina, Cassandra, Louis and all the beautiful grand and great grandchildren as you stroll down the wonderful and precious memory lane of Hildred Hoosier Parham, thank God for the most priceless of all treasures that she was a woman of God and knew God as her Savior.
Another Chapter has began full of grace and glory for Hildred. God has called Hildred to his heavenly home, part of his great plan, although it may be hard, we all must understand that Heaven is promised to all of us if only we believe, and Hildred Hoosier Parham was a believer.
