I know for a fact this woman have the heart of Jesus. I watched other people who said they love Jesus but they are holy than thou. But she would come up to people and they would just open up. She would have some worshiping going on and the king of glory would be all up service She truly truly has the heart of God. God had to have because we didn't deserve her. Thanks God for the time you allowed us to share her. Hallelujah Amen

To Felecia and Peter: I was saddened to learn of the passing of your BELOVED mother. She was such a sweet person with a BIG smile. When we moved to Tarrytown in August, 1971, she was one of many that welcomed The Thompson Family to Williams Street. Hold dear to the precious, precious memories of her, and know that earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal. May GOD strengthen you all and your father in this most difficult time. My prayers are with you all.

Mother Nunn will always hold a special place in my heart. I will forever miss her. We had so many wonderful conversations. She loved God with all that she was. She was an inspiration to so many and encouraged so many to continue in the faith. She loved people and she loved her family, but most of all she truly loved God. I love you mom and I'm going to truly miss having you around, but I know heaven is glad to have you.

Auntie Lorraine,
There's sooo much that I could say about you that would be a never ending story. I chose the candle light because this is what you were to me growing up. You always made me laugh no matter how I felt at the moment. Being around you, I can truly say that you never changed, you lived the life of Christ, you were also a strong and determined women, and an inspiration. For me you had more than one title. You were an Aunt, a minister, a counselor, and a friend. Auntie Lorraine, you were that light. Uncle Roy, Felicia, and Peter, I luv u guys and I'm praying for u. Be encouraged, Gitte.

Sis. Nunn, as she is affectionately called, could bring so much joy into a room of gloom. She ministered truth & wanted you to do better. She was fun-loving & she loved God & her family. We're going to miss having her around us, but her bubbly spirit will live on in us. Rest & enjoy Heaven, Sis. Nunn.Remember the night we got our crowns at the retreat
