    “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who had given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out if the Father’s hand.” John 10:27-29

    To each of you, Charles (Dad), Lisa, Mark and James I pray and encourage you that “Moms” love, life and legacy live in you and through you. Her joy was each of you and all of you as she now is embraced by the Masters arms.

    The only words that I can think of to say is, “Thank you”. You helped raise me, you kept me inline when my mom was not there. You looked out for all of us, I hope you always knew that was never forgotten. Especially by me. Thank you.
