Our sweet and precious mama went home to be with Jesus, oh, how we will miss her precious face and smile!! God blessed us with the most loving and precious mother and grandmother. She taught us the true meaning of love and how important family is, we have so many wonderful memories of all our family gatherings and cherish each one. Praise God Mama is no longer suffering on this earth and can rest in peace. She has a family that admires, respects and loves her with all our hearts. Saturday and Sunday were spent celebrating the life of our mother. Mama brought so much joy to all her family and friends, she will be truly missed.
