    I knew you couldn't be with us in our world forever, but glory to God, I know you're resting now, rejoicing and forever healed. Although it hurts so much, I'll try not to be selfish. The first time I met you I fell in love with you. You are the matriarch for so many, and the numbers who love you are numerous. You have touched so many in nothing but good ways and we're all blessed by having known your love, talent, generosity and great cooking. You taught me how to make the best cornbread ever! Your faith in God has led you on a journey filled with grace, love for humanity, and the love of God. I will treasure the short time you were able to lay eyes and hands on our grandchildren. Thank you for loving them. Lord God, we thank you for lending this soldier to us. We rejoice in the celebration of this life and we find comfort in her transition because we know she is well received by You. Take care of her. We shall meet again someday. Amen. Love, Charles, Retta, Amber, Leroy, little Cree and little Connor.
