We love and miss you Mama. You were blessed with a husband , Jerry, who loved you and showed you the love of Jesus Christ. All of your kids are grateful that we were able to have you as long as we did but would not call you back as you are forever healed. You can run the streets of gold and hug all our loved ones. Until we see you again, we will remember the good times and your sweetness that was second nature to you. Hugs and kisses sweet Mama.
