Heaven gained an angel!! My mom is strolling over Heaven tonight no more pain or sickness or sorrow! Cancer free she is celebrating with loved ones. My mom taught us so much that I canít list it all but her joy of singing was evident and her love and compassion for others and her trust in God was unquestioned.
The doctors told us what we already knew that she was the strongest woman they had ever seen no way she should have still been here! I promised her I would take her home as soon as I could and we finally got to deliver that promise. She wasnít gonna let me forget it. Thanks for all the love and prayers for Mrs Margie. Her battle through 5 cancers and 4 surgeries at the end were very tough but she knew God would not forsake her and she knew she would never be alone. Prayers for my daddy Mr Billy he loved that woman and he stayed by her side through everything. Itís gonna be hard moving forward but we are thankful for the time we got to share with our parents and the example of love they taught us. Rest In Peace mother and have fun strolling over heaven.
