Yvonne. Roy, Earl, Ronnie & Mitchell;
I was saddened to hear of the passing of your mother but rest assured she is at peace and no longer in pain and cares of this world. If there is anything i can do for you remember i am only a phone call away.
Please let me leave you with a verse of scripture to give you some comfort in the trying days ahead.
"Let not your hearts be troubled, you believe in God, believe also in me, In my Father''s House are many Mansions, if it were not so, I would have told you, I go to prepare a place for you.And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and the Way you know".
John: 14: 1-4..
