      Tribute from Desmond

                   To Say Goodbye                                            

Throughout my life you have always been near, at first you were a hand to hold, the person who came running to pick me up when I fell. I knew you were always a phone call away, and am so thankful for your wisdom, advice, words of encouragement and silent prayers. If I am beautiful it is because you told me so. If I am strong it is because you showed me how to pick myself up and move on learning from my mistakes.

Thank you so much for everything you were and are. I Love you.



                    Tribute from Cynthia

Dear Mother, you have always kept the family tied with love, care, and affection. I feel honored and privileged to have been your daughter. You loved your kids unconditionally and were the best mother and grandmother we could ever asked for. Thanks for fighting hard and holding on as long as you possibly could, I am going to miss those day we fought only because you wanted the best for me as your daughter. You were a Mother to all that came your way. Not did you care for people physically but spiritually as a Pastor. We cried endlessly when you died. But we promise we won’t let the tears mar the smiles that you have given us when you were alive keep resting Mother until we meet again, in Eternity.
