Dear Family of Ms. Toni Morrison:

I would like to reach out to all of you during this very difficult time. Toni was a very gifted writer. And she will truly be missed by all those people whose paths that she had crossed. You should all be very proud of her. There will never be another Toni Morrison. She was one of a kind. I am also a writer.

I am also a 43 year member of Sixth Grace Presbyterian Church, 600 East 35th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60616. The Reverend Dr. David B. Thornton is the Pastor, The Moderator of The Session, and The Head of the Staff. He is not only my Pastor, but My Mentor, Teacher, and Spiritual Advisor as well. Reverend Donald B. Register is The Pastor Emeritus.

I am also a Very Proud Former Member of Church Musician Ship Guild, Inc. (1988-2008). The late Dr. Mildred G. Lewis was The Founder, and Executive Director. I was their Administrative Assistant, Executive Secretary, and Public Relations Director.
My 20 years with this wonderful organization, had helped me to develop many skills. I am very glad that God placed me with this organization. I came to them in the year of 1987, and I joined in the year of 1988. I was about 29, or 30 years old at the time.

I know that I am single, but God is The Head of my life. And I am able to "WORK BEHIND THE SCENES" TO HELP MY PASTOR, AND MY CHURCH HOME. AND I HAVE NO REGRETS. I HAVE MANY SKILLS WHICH I AM GRATEFUL TO GOD FOR. SOMEONE SAID TO PUT GOD FIRST, AND EVERYTHING ELSE WILL FALL INTO PLACE. AND I HAVE. I AM NOT EVEN 63 YEARS OLD YET. I AM 62 YEARS OLD.

I will continue to pray for all of you. ALL I CAN SAY IS "WELL DONE THY GOOD, AND FAITHFUL SERVANT", MATTHEW 25:21, AND "REST IN PEACE, SISTER TONI". WITH MY HEARTFELT SYMPATHY, MS. VALINDA DARLENE JONES, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO. I HOPE THAT I DON'T HAVE TO MOVE AGAIN. I USE TO LIVE IN IDA B. WELLS IN CHICAGO, ILLINOIS. AND I WORKED AS A CHURCH SECRETARY AT MY CHURCH HOME SIXTH GRACE PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN THE YEARS OF 1983-1990, AND AT WEST POINT MISSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH. I DO HAVE COMPUTER SKILLS.
