I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at the last day: and not only, but unto all them also that Love his appearing. Betty Ann and family sending my love from our family and knowing that your Mom was ready. With that you did you part and now you all can rest in Peace also. Lots of Love, cousin Gloria.
