  6. Momma, I’ve never known a more powerful & worldly woman to enter the Kingdom of God through her devotion to The Father, The Son & The Holy Spirit than you. Over my 67 years, you lived and taught me the gift of giving, of living fully & loving deeply, setting examples by devotion to all your dear family members and friends. I received so much by your example, and you loved me like no other! I felt that every single day of my life. ✝️💟✝️

    Rest Now Momma, and Glow in the LIGHT OF GOD for All Eternity ✝️
