My Mom, the prettiest red-head in the world.

She is a great mom, and I’m going to really miss her.

I know she has finally met her Savior, Jesus, and all her friends and loved ones that have been waiting for her.

Look for me, for I will be there, too. I love you.

Nana was such a special lady to me as she always said she was praying for you and you knew that she was. She was a Godly woman with beautiful red hair.

Please accept our deepest sympathy in the loss of your mother. Aunt Mary will surely be missed by many. Although we hadn’t seen her for a long time, she was still in our prayers and thoughts. She surely has gone to a better place and will be taken care of in the hands of GOD.

She was more like a Mother than a mother-in-law. We were very close.

You taught me a lot, and I learned so much from you. I will continue your legacy that you gave me. I’m sure you know how God is now using me for His Glory. Your prayers are being answered. Thank you for your unconditional love. Thank you for teaching me how to be a prayer warrior. Thank you for your example. I can’t thank you enough…
