    Here is a poem I wrote when I lost my mom aj I love u if y’all need anything please let me know…… The morning I walked in and seen you were set free I went down to my knees and could not believe that God really set you free.I hurt, miss and cry but glad your in peace no more hugs, call, or talks but I promise one day we will start where we left off. I will never forget u but always miss u so till the day we meet up again you go walk with Jesus and I promise one day we will meet up again
    God bless y’all…
