    Your momma’s time on earth was only a stepping stone to her heavenly home. We know your daddy and Marilyn greeted her at Heaven’s Gate with love. Our prayers are with you at this time of loss, but we celebrate her long and beautiful life.

    What a wonderful, long life. She and our mom were the same age. So many memories come back. I always saw your family come to church across the street, then grade school and Camp Fire. Mrs Coe and I talked genealogy often. I think of y’all often. What a glorious reunion is happening in Heaven about now. I expect she and Mom will bump into one another. And one day, all of us reunite. God bless each of you. May God wrap His arms around you. God bless. Georgiana, Theresa and family.
