    Singing in heaven now! I’m glad we got the chance to know her the past few years. Thank you, Kim, for bringing your Mama to church, to be part of our LIFEgroup. She welcomed us into her home for fellowships, and enjoyed entertaining us with her music. Fond memories. God bless you all in the days ahead.
    Love & prayers, Jackie.
