    As mama Ethel takes her wings and goes home to be with her Anthony and the Lord, we are praying for a comforting touch from the hand of God that will give you peace at this time. We all loved your mom and she will truly be missed. However, we can see her smile, hear her voice, enjoy her cooking, laugh at her funny comments and feel her love every time we are in the presence of one of you. You will be her light that shines on. With love and our sincere condolences. Sis Pearl and Bro John
