You always had a positive impact on anyone that came across you. You taught us the way of the Lord. We have the fear of God in our hearts because of how you nurtured us to be compassionate in everything we do. You didnt stop teaching us alone. You further extended the legacy to your grandchildren by teaching them how to pray at a very young age.

”Mom, I want to thank you for raising us well despite the ups and downs. Yes, it hurts, but I’m happy that your legacy lives on with us and that you are in a better place.”
