    Our daughters were childhood friends and are best friends now.I remember all the times the girls made plans ( sleepovers, the mall, movies,etc..) and trying to get us moms to say “yes”. I always told Jamea long as your momma says its OK , I will say yes too. You will be greatly missed Ms. Gayland. Matthew 5:4 “Blessed Are Those Who Mourn, For They Will Be Comforted”. No more suffering! You are with the Master Most High!!! My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
    Jamea- If you need ANYTHING, I’m just a phone call away. Love you baby~ Tammi Cooper
