John 5:24 says at the moment you come to Christ you cross over from death to a new life.

Ecclesiastes 12:7 says the body returns to dust and spirit returns to God.

On the night of August 16, 2014, God sent an angel to mama to take her home with a smile, peace and no more pain. Make the work I've done and speak for me!

Isaiah 43 - Tribute to Mama

A million times I cried, if my love alone could have you, mama you never would have died. No one could ever fill that special place in my heart for you! I love you in death, I love you still. No one could ever fill my heart; it is broken to lose you mama. You never went alone, for part of me went with you. The long race has been won!
