Erma was such a sweet lady. I've gotten to know her at our church in Rincon Marquis Holliness church. After they left from there, I've miss her so much. She is in paradise resting now. Until we meet again my sweet friend.

There is a huge hole and sadness in our hearts, as we say goodbye to an amazing mother and friend. God's presence surrounded her and her kindness showed the world that Jesus really is alive. Hearts here on earth may be heavy and grieving, but what rejoicing must be in Heaven that a saint just went home for eternity!
