Sorry for your loss. Revelation 21:3,4 says soon all things that cause pain and death will be gone forever! That hope, serves as an anchor for us.

It was if you were my second mother all of my life. You as well as my MoM taught me to be good to people and to love each other and to always go to church and love the Lord. Y’all both instilled that in me as well as David and my brother Clifton. We grew up together as children and were always close. Obviously as we got older we started lives and went separate ways. My love for you never wavered. I called you often even last Monday to see if you were in a hospital. I loved you with all of my heart and I always told you as you got older that I felt like I was breaking you cause you were so small when I gave you big hugs. I will miss you but I know I will see you again over on the other side! You are surly visiting all of our loved ones. Make sure you hug my mommy, Uncle Babe and Bobby ok. RIP MY BEAUTIFUL AUNT VERDIE 💕💕💕♥️ You are in a better place I just know that you are.🙏🏻✝️💟
