To Bonita and Family,
The days of our lives are seventy years; And if by reason of strength they are eighty years, Yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; For it is soon cut off, and we fly away- Psalms 90:10. Long life consists of mixed blessings. I'm sure during Mrs. Ramey's life, she saw and experienced much, many happy times and some not so much so. Long life gave her the opportunity to be a part of the lives of children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, several generations. What a blessing. The loss of parents, a spouse and children were also chapters of her life which I'm sure were painful. Now, after seeing much, living much, experiencing much, she rests in the arms of Jesus. There's no better place to be. I know you will miss her, but the memories last forever. It is my prayer that you all will find peace and comfort in knowing that God is still in control. The transitions of living and dying are all a part of The Master's plan. God called Mrs. Jennie's name and she answered, "Yes, LORD, here I am."
With sincere sympathy -
