Dorcia I was saddened to hear of Suzzette's passing. I called you three days before because you were on my mind. We grew up together as neighbors ,classmates and the preacher's kids. The same God that has brought us this far is the same God that will get us through. Remember that weeping may endure for night but joy will come in the morning.
