"A message from Khadija Connor sent on Aug. 29, 2016
Recently, while doing some major housecleaning,I found pictures of past birthdays. I smiled fondly thinking of the memories I shared with her granddaughter Rukiya. She was feisty, she was fun and she was truly fabulous. And most importantly, she was loved. Again, condolences to the family. It is still a great loss to all of us.
"Your memory is alive in the wonderful stories that Rukiya shares about you. You have left much behind. Be at peace."
"Rukiya, you lovingly took care of your grandmother, and still take care to remember her anniversaries. Our African ancestors believed that a person was not dead until know one remembers their name. We know she is alive with Jesus now, but she is also alive on earth because we remember her."
You may continue to rest in the arms of Jesus.. I'm doing all I can to learn of my Family History.. I remember meeting you back in 1975-76 and you shared memories of the family... I will cherish your kind words of wisdom forever..
"Momsey, I often miss you. Although your flower has faded your lovely fragrance perfumes and refreshes my life with joyful memories and wisdom for a successful life."
"I am so glad that I was able to visit with Ms. Nellie Ruth Jenkins and Rev. Rountree several times. I especially enjoyed the brunch we had by the water. I appreciated her joy of life, which taught me to embrace each moment. She is truly missed."
"I celebrate all that you taught me in living life to it's fullest.
"Tribute by Rev. C. Brown--We find joy in knowing that our lives have been enriched, inspired and motivated, by having shared special moments with Sister Nellie Ruth Jenkins. Her long life was a blessing and a truthful witness of God's favor shown for one of his chosen vessels."
"Gone but not forgotten. We miss you, Momsey. Always in our hearts."
"She was with the Lord for Easter! My dad was also born in 1907, I hope they have met up there. We praise God for a life well lived."
"Weeping may Endure for a night, but Joy cometh in the morning! Wow 104 years old what a Blessing!! Keeping you all lifted in prayer!"
"Now she lives forever with the Lord. Ruthann and Cherlyn be at peace, your grandmother is safely home. She is reunited with her beloved husband, mother and father and all those she dearly loved while on earth. Please accept my deepest sympathy."
"To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord.God Bless."
"Many blessings to Ruthann, Jerlyn and Michelle as they continue to live out the results of the love, caring and wisdom that you shared with them over the years. May you rest in peace in the arms of God. We know that God's love continues to surround and enfold you throughout eternity. John and Sylvia"
"The Bible Verses, the unwavering deternination to live your life, the wonderful anecdotes you provided for Ruthann - and me by extension - are only a few of the things I will remember. People who have touched us live on in us. That touch gets passed on, and on and on."
"May your passage to eternity be sweet and may your reception at the golden gates be joyous. Sit then and rest from the long journey; enjoying the presence of God."
"Heaven has one more angel!
I remember how gracious you were;
God truly blessed you with a full life and
you were a blessing to many people.
What a reunion in heaven- I can hear you singing: Yes, Jesus Loves Me.
And he truly does!"
"I had the pleaure of meeting you at your 100th birthday!
You were full of life; danced, and recited bible verses."
