God Gave Light To Our Soul
She toiled so hard for those she loved.  She said goodbye to no one.  Her spirit flew before we knew.  Her work on earth was done.  We miss you now, our hearts are sore.  As time goes by, we miss you more.  Her loving smile, her gentle face, no one can fill her vacant place.  Her life was love and labor.  He love for her family is true.  She did the best for all of us.  We will always remember you.

We love you, The Children.

The family will receive friends on Friday, May 3, 2019 at the First African Missionary Baptist Church in Vidalia from 2:00PM until 7:00PM
