    I wish to express my sympathy to the family for the loss of Winnie. Caring people that are willing to volunteer their time are rare these days. May you draw comfort from bible texts such as Revelation 21: 3,4 where Jehovah God promises to wipe out death. In the coming days as you pray for strength and comfort remember that God cares for you 1Peter 5: 7 and that Jesus promised that there would be a resurrection John 5: 28, 29 allowing us to see our dear loved ones again.

    I am remembering all the good times we had growing up through our high school days & living within blocks of one another. Wanita played the trumpet in band & I played the clarinet–we used to trade instruments to see if we could play them. We used to have “sleep-overs” & had a lot of fun & laughs together. She will be sorely missed. A most loving and generous person is now pain free and in a better place. God bless her & her family.
