"Grace, Mercy , and Peace
  On this special day of remembrance, we must ask ourselves when we remember someone; what is the first word that comes to mind? My spirit says to me that word is LOVE, not just love :but love for others, particularly family . First we must ask ourselves what is Love? Webster tells us ...Love is a feeling of strong affection for a person. You do know that love has been abused in the world today. It has been used to describe sexual lust, it has been used as an excuse for sin to continue in the lives of loved ones. II John 1:6 lets us know that love is when we walk in obedience to God commands . I John 4:7-8 , lets us know that God is love and love is a great gift from God.
    Look! in my life Mrs. Eva has shown me the strong love for family and for marriage. She made sure that everyone came together as a family and stayed together. I also; have learned that if you was family and needed somewhere to lay your head her door was always open. I also experienced first hand her strong love for marriage, when I first meet my wife Gail, she told me" Boy! get away from my daughter aint you married? and I quickly said no ma'am I use to be married.I said to myself then WOW she really values marriage. Look! that's why as a son-in-law, I have always opened my doors to not only my family, but also my wife family, and I have learned her strong values for marriage.
   Sometimes in life we may not always agree on everything, but the one thing we must all agree on is to "Love your neighbor , as yourself: for the entire law is fulfilled in keeping this one command." Galatians 5:14
I would like to say Thanks for showing and giving LOVE, these are my heart felt thoughts. Matthew 11:28- Lets us know and we all must listen, He tells us to come to Him, all you who are weary and burden, and He will give you rest.
   May these words of my spirit and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight Lord my rock and redeemer.
In Christ,
Rev. Tarrence H. Finney Sr."

"Mommy ~ ~ ~ ~
I just stopped by before heading to church. I awaken to start my day with your favorite bible verse 23 Psalm and your favorite song.."Lord your my landlord",  Well, today is the day that you took flight and God called His warrior home; Yet, it seems like it was yesterday. Mom I still hear you voice when I'm stressed saying "Pray Gail", When I need my mother I can still feel your presence, and feel you more and more in my heart each day, and I sit and remember something funny that you said or did.
I miss seeing you and as I type you this message, I know that I have a lot of work to do down here to see you again. I'm in the dressing up room preparing one day to share that hug and to welcome that kiss you always gave me on the cheek. I strive daily to be the faithful and understanding mother to my daughter that you showed all of us, I bask to be that Godly fearing mother that you were. You taught me  truth, love, modesty, humbleness , you taught me all the qualities that it takes to be a true follower of Jesus Christ and I thank you for that......I say it now and I said it then "Thank you for raising me, Thank you for loving me, thank you for showing me how to be a good wife and mother, and most of all teaching me to love myself, for I would not have known these qualities If I didn't see you demonstrating them daily.
Mom you are truly missed and heartily desired. You would be proud to see how Tarrencia has blossomed into a young lady and how intelligent she is...... She misses you a lot mommy especially when she gets angry with me, but she always says," She have to keep it straight to see you again" .  I wanted to keep you ,but Jesus called you on home to rest because you had fought a good fight and your tour of duty was complete. Until next time my Gorgeous Queen. Rest on my Guardian Angel....
Love Always,
Your Babygirl Gail<><"

"If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane,
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

I thought that I would miss you so, and never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say "She's with you every day."
"The sun, the moon, the wind, the stars, will forever be around,
reminding you of the love you shared, and the peace she's finally found." Love  you  chick....."

        Your sunset dated come and goes, but it still feel as if it was yesterday.I still feel as if you are here. When I'm having a hard day I can hear you say, 'Gail, pick your head up what are you doing, if you drag your head you will drag your feet" this would always put me back in place to keep it moving no matter what comes my way. Knowing that you are one of my angels on my shoulder and God as my Co-Pilot, This ship will sail just fine. We miss and Love you MOMMY. I know I will see you in Heaven one day................
We Love You
You Baby

"Sweet smile on your face as you sleep the pain away,
Resting in God's arms now, although in the ground your body lay.
He needed another angel in the Heavenly choir and that's why you had to go.
As you promised, you are still with us watching your children here below.
I never would have imagined the end would be like this, me comforting you.
Holding your hand, telling you not to worry was not an easy thing for me to do.

You have always been there through the thick and the thin
No matter what I've done, unconditionally your love never wavering.
When I told you of the mistakes I made and all the times people saw me fall
You simply nodded and gently replied 'so have we all'.
The key to success is learning from the past
Ensuring a brighter future is now the present task.
A pillar of strength even until the end
Fighting all life's battles, knowing it triumphantly you would win
Pushing me to be the best that you know I can be
Reminding me to keep the faith and allow God to lead me.
Knowing it's through Christ that I can do all things
And as He never makes a mistake I will come through victoriously.
I miss you more than these words could ever say
The pain in my heart is from one unimaginable day
After I cried all that I could; my eyes still shed countless more tears
And when I try to sleep, I have nightmares of ten-thousand fears
I walk in footsteps on an unsure path
My load feels so heavy I am not sure I will last.
Silly though I may be, I am afraid of life now that you're gone
Because I've always had a mother.
I wonder if I prayed hard enough and if so, did they get through.
Finding relief in knowing I will see you again someday soon
Remembering all you taught me as my soul I continue to groom
I will walk in footsteps you have walked before me
Seeing the path you walked lead you, Mommy, straight into victory.
So as you sleep Mommy, in the cradle of the Lord,
I am reassured of God's promises in His Holy Word.
I dream of the day when Heaven's gates open to receive me
And with your smiling face and loving eyes, reunited once again I will be.

Love You Chick.....R.I.P....Valeria Shinholster"

"I am learning how to live
In a new way
Since that day
You were taken away.
I am learning how to live
With the things left unsaid
Knowing I got to say them
With every tear that I shed.
I am learning how to live
By embracing the pain
Knowing that you live on
Through the memories that remain.
I am learning how to live
Knowing I will never again see your face
And I have peace knowing
You’re in a better place.
Another year gone and a new one starts without you by my side!!! Still loving and missing you my dear lady!!"

"LIGHT A CANDLE

And I will light a candle for you.  
To shatter all the darkness and bless the times we knew.
Like a beacon in the night.  
The flame will burn bright  
and guide us on our way.  
Oh, today I light a candle for you.  
The seasons come and go,  
And I'm weary of the change.
I keep moving on,  
you know it's not the same.
And when I'm walking all alone,  
Do you hear me call your name?
Do you her me sing the songs we used to sing?  
You filled my life with wonder,
Touched me with surprise,
I always saw that something special deep within Your eyes.  
And through the good times and the bad,  
We carried on with pride.
I hold onto the love and life we knew.
Rest on My dear Lady!!! Love Valval"

"Mommy,,,,,,
                        I can imagine the sacrifice it took
                for you to be a wife, mother, worker, and cook
               Working hard, making sacrifices to keep us happy
                From sending us to school to changing our nappy
            From the expensive toys and field trips that we took in school
                         There is no one else to thank, but you!
Mommy....... I said to you often how much I love you and I say it until the day I'm called to glory..... I LOVE YOU
                       I love you NOW I Love you THEN
                       I love you because you are my best friend
Everything you told me and taught me as a mom, it stares me in my face daily, Thank you for preparing me for what was and what is to come

                             Rest in Heavenly peace MOMMY.....
Forever yours...xoxoxo
Gail<><"

"The beam shines down,
The rays so bright,
The stars come forward,
At the dead of night.
I feel you close,
You're always here,
The glow of the sun,
You're my star, my dear.
An angel gained,
A distance apart,
Our LOVE lives on,
A place in my heart.
                              LOVE YOU CHICK (R.I.P) Valval"
