Although I didn't know you personally, all of your books connected me to you. I felt the spirit of you in all of your work, but "Mama Day" in particular resonated with me. I could so relate to the characters and their experiences. Thank you so much for your literary ministry, my sister. Condolences extended to your blood kin and to all of your soul kin, myself included.
