    God has called his angel home. Rejoice in her being a role model for not only the believers, yet the nonbelievers as well knowing that there’s a God and He allowed his love to shine through her!

    I’m Free
    As you grieve for me, know I’m now free. I’m following the path God laid for me. I took His hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all.

    I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work, or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way. I found that place at the close of day.

    If my parting has left a void,
    Then fill it with remembered joy.
    A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

    Be not burdened with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

    Perhaps my time seemed all to brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me. God wanted me now, He set me free.

    Family – His promises are ours!

    Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” a for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ b or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

    He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

    He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To the thirsty I will give water without cost from the spring of the water of life. Those who are victorious will inherit all this, and I will be their God and they will be my children. – Rev 24

    Love all as hard as you can! And see you Auntie at the Great feast!
    Nephew Dwayne

    Dear Thomas and Family:

    During times like these, our family has always found PEACE and CLOSURE in the following:

    “But now they deserve a better country, that is, an Heavenly, wherefore GOD is not ashamed to be called their GOD, for HE hath prepared for them a city. Hebrew 11:16 KJV

    May your FAITH continue to SUSTAIN you and your family.
