    Ervin, Alton and I extend our heartfelt sympathy to you due to the passing of your mother.
    Eugenia was a very jolly person when I taught at Lakeview Elementary. We had some good laughs regularly regarding unpredictable things that sometimes took place at school. I will always remember when we sat together at the Rock Church several years ago. We were inspired by a T. D. Jakes presentation held there.
    Be of good courage knowing that God never make mistakes and joy will come in the morning.
