    We so enjoyed our time with you at Thanksgiving, not knowing it would be the last time we saw you. We believe that God opened his arms up and welcomed you in to his Kingdom to join so many of our dear ones that left us recently. We will miss you and hold your family dear to our hearts, as they suffer your loss.

    Dearest Loraine and all my family members, I was shocked to hear of Lil'Jimmy going home so soon but the Lord knows best and Jimmy is in great care. Know daddy and all the others will be happy to see him and especially grandmama. Wish I could be with all of you but you are in thought and my prayers. Loraine I will call you later when things settle down. I pray God will give all of you strength for the many days ahead. Love you all! Landra and Martin
