We Miss You Mom
We thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.
We think of you in silence, We often speak your name.
All we have are memories, and your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our my keepsake, with which we’ll never part.
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our heart.

I would have been there to support my nephew, niece and the Holloway family if circumstances had been different. However, all of our strength comes from our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. God bless and keep the Holloway family in this time of loss of the matriarch of the family.

Sis Ruthie Mae was ALWAYS the same to me!! She was genuine, sweet, and kind to everyone I saw her interact with. Growing up in church it could sometimes be difficult to find someone in a different generation that exemplified so much love and honest care towards a younger, changing generation. I am praying for all the family and I know that God will provide comfort to you all!!
