    Poochie is one of my favorite girls, I moved to Texas over 30 years ago. I always had to visit her when I come home, I go to my BFF’s home her sister Pam, and say “call Poochie so I can see her. I knew we were about to eat crabs(or some food), have fun, fellowship, and laugh, laugh, laugh. She was so funny, and really made you feel special. Rest my friend, I love you and will miss you so! The work you done on earth speaks for you. Thank you for giving to the Lord. You made the world a better place to live, and I am so happy God allowed me to be apart of your life. You are truly a soldier of the Lord! Glory to God! I am praying with you and for you family, May God comfort you and make his face shine upon you. You have my sincere condolences!
