    Dear Godmother, I am so happy that you were a part of my early girl days. I remember you combing my hair and braiding it and being a part of your home and family. Most of all I remember how you made me feel as a little girl very loved. May God Who watched you teach myself and the kids on Sunday of His Son, Jesus, now extend His mercies to you and welcome you into His Kingdom. May you hear those joyful words, “Well done, good and faithful servant, enter into Your Father’s Kingdom.” Thank you again for introducing me to Jesus. Give my love to Tony, tell him I remember him often. Rest in Peace, Love Sue.
