    Hello my cousin Sylvester & other family members and friends of your beautiful mother. Mothers are so special there’s no one like them and when they are no more there’s an open space left every where they were. In the coming days, weeks, months, etc… you’ll miss her so much but just remember she’s not suffering, she is asleep, just like Sister Rodgers, waiting for Jesus to wake them up as John 5: 28, 29 reads. Keep that hope in your forefront. I will call in a month or so. It’s been so long since we’ve talked. I look forward to it.

    My Sincere Condolences
    Willie Mae

    My dear cousin Sylvester and cousins, my heart ache with you. May you find daily strength and comfort from God’s promise of a future time when death, pain, and sorrow will be no more. When it feels no one else can clearly understand how you feel, then turn to Psalms 145:18,19.

    Love you always
