I miss you so much mommy! There are no words that can even express my thoughts. I miss your smile. I miss talking to you everyday, texting, facetiming, our lunch and dinner dates. You were my best friend. Although this hurts I understand God has a better place for you and you are no longer suffering. You taught me so much mommy and will forever be my example . You were so STRONG!!! I love you beautiful!

Our Sister, Shirley Robertson, will truly be missed in Class 13, her Sunday School Class. Shirley enjoyed sharing her thoughts, and always had a testimony for God and anyone she could help.

My cousin Shirley was four months older than me. Growing up I always admired her. She gave her life to Christ at an early age and as I got older remembering how happy she always seemed to be was one of the reasons that I got saved. My heartfelt condolences go out to her husband, childen, my aunt Cassie, my other two cousins Lee and Will and the rest of her family.

To everything there is a season, God knew the right time to bring Shirley into my life. I thank God for using her to witness holiness to me. That was the first time I had heard of the rapture. I’m so grateful and thankful that she took time out for those long hard conversations that wasn’t pleasant to my flesh but good for my soul. That’s real love , when someone is willing to tell you the truth on how to make it to heaven. I love you my Friend, you will truly be missed. My prayers are with you guys.
