Loretta, Rosetta, Patricia & family,

Your mother is at peace. Think of the good times and smile. For comfort read Ecclesiastes 3:1-15,17,19,20,22. May The Creator bring you peace during this time.

To my beloved and wonderful auntie Bessie you are genuinely loved and will be sincerely missed. My heart is sadden, so glad I had the chance to be with you this past summer even more blessed to have you as my aunt. I miss the days coming to your house and eating. Watching you serve faithfully on the usher board taught me that helping and serving is a way to show appreciation for your blessings. I love you my beautiful Aunt missing you always rest easy.
