IN TRIBUTE ...


OUR MOTHER
Her soul has silently continued the journey in God's house of
life. Earth was never intended to be a permanent dwelling place and
mother was prepared to travel to her resting place.
Mother has sacrificed for her children and has helped to rear many
of her grandchildren.
God knows best. He called her home to rest. Mother, rest in peace.

With love from your children.
Gen.a, Mavis, David, HlubHcl. June .nd I Jrry







MY GREAT-GRANDMOTHER
My great-grandmother was the sweetest, most loving lady that I
know. Her long silver hair shined in the sun and her big black eyes
shimmered like diamonds. Her smile was filled with warmth and love.
She was a blessing from above.
My great-grandmother always said to me, "God bless your little
soul." I always asked her. "What do you mean?" She would answer,
"His blessing is more precious than gold and it is brighter than a
thousand rubies."
The time has come when we have to say goodbye. It hurts to know
that I shall never again hear your wise words, but they will remain with
me throughout my life. I look at you for the last time. Your hair, eyes
and pleasant smile will stay with all of us forever.

Your grcat-pranddaughteT.
