To Felicia and Family,
It saddens my heart to know that your mother had passed.
She is in God's hands now where she will have no more pain or suffering. I hope that you and your family will find comfort in the Lord, knowing that we must all pass this way one day to be with the Lord forever.
May God bless you sweetheart, your cousin Jelverlyn Cole and Family
