June 17, 1926 - May 23, 2018
My suffering is over and all the pain and loneliness is gone. My date was set a long time ago and only the Lord knew. My life is a memory now and all that I could leave my children, my family, and all who knew me.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death neither sorrow nor crying, neither shall there be anymore pain. Rev 21:4
