This was my great grandmother who I have only seen twice in my entire life. Once in Albany, and the second time in Ft. Myers at my grandma's funeral, Pearlie Mae, and boy my grandma looks just like her mom.

Praise the Lord. Another child of God has gone home. I have very fond memories of Aunt Burda Lou. I fondly remember her singing Mahalia Jackson's "How I Got Over" under the anointing. What a blessing! My prayers are with the family. Blessings Minister Regina Hamilton Watts.

I didn't know Mother Gosha, however she seem to have been a wonderful person. I just wanted to say that you were a blessed family to have had her for as long as you did.
