I truly adored her in so many ways but mostly her smile warmed us when she would come sing with our precious Sisters from Binghamtown Baptist Church on our front porch….Jeffery always looked for her because of her smile but the sign language in song….Wish I could see her one last time on earth-but I will see her in Heaven with my son some sweet glorious day….love & prayers to her family & our Church family. Hold tight to JESUS & His ever present comfort.
