Losing a mother is one of the deepest sorrows a heart can know. No words, no matter how kind, can mend your heartache because the heart aches for what it has loved and lost. But however long it takes, I’ll be here praying for better days and wishing always for your peace and comfort. The pandemic has taken away my presence but our ties will always keep us close. May the love that is present, surround you and your family and bring the strength you need at this time.

To Marilyn Hall and family.
Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God in, believe also in me. In my father's house or many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you and if I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you u
Unto myself that where I am, that you may be also and whether I go you know, and the ways ye know. John 14: 1-4. I'm saying to you and the family, the time is now to prepare ourselves to also return again. Follow the roadmap and the rules of Christ our Lord and Savior Jesus christ has left for us. I am so sorry because I know what it's like to lose a mother, a good sweet Mother, but be encouraged if you live right you will see her again.l love you.
