I love you Mama, thou I miss you I'm grateful you're finally home. For so long you've called out to the Lord to come and get you. He heard your many prayers and He came and took you home. I miss you mama, but I promised you I'd come to you some day. All I can think of is Mama's healed. Praise God. Kiss my sweet percious sister for me, let her know daily I think about her. And give my daddy big hug for me. Mama always I will love you. Your daughter Rosemary
