|Let the memory of Yvonne be with us forever|
"Hi, Sis. It's been a year. Wow! I really don't count the years. People reminded me and then I saw this on my email, so I've decided to write. Yesterday they sang Worth It, which I have made my memorial song of you. I cried, balled because God thought you were worth dying for, worth saving, worth keeping and now you are free. You are free from harsh treatment, sickness, disease. I'm sorry you had to go, that life had gotten too bad for you to stay, that what was coming would have been too hard for you. You and your hubby have always been there for me. You bought my first tv when Sherritta and I lived all alone on Farragut Street. You supported me in my foolishness, in good times, bad times. Thanks. My desire is to be here for your children. I've made some mistakes but I'm doing better and will be here. Love you much!!!!! MISS YOU!!!!"
"Happy Birthday, Sis. and Happy Belated Anniversary. Are you partying in heaven? Your hubby went to Dennie's church with us on Sunday. The Pastor called all of us up and spoke Word over us. She was on point. She talked about how your hubby is a good man and how he had some rough childhood, but God is going to work it all out. I was just balling. God is so GOOD!!!! We all then went out for y'all's anniversaries. Of course, we went to Jerry's. Your hubby ordered some stuffed shrimp, but it didn't look like what we had - fried and steamed - so he sent it back. But it was delicious; I tasted it. He said, "you know I'm funny about my food. Yes, I know." We also had that bomb coconut cake. You know there was so much food we had to take half of it home. We had a wonderful time.Well, Talk to you soon."
"Today I read Isa 57:1-2. God welcomed you in heaven so you would not go thru anymore hardship on this earth. I am still having a hard time with you not being here. It just was too short of time...but you are at peace, which you deserve. You gave us so much love, and I thank God for that. I'd rather you have peace here, and I would fight for you for that. Anyhow you are there, but you are forever in Our hearts. Love you, my sister JoAnne!"
"Dear Mommy, You prayed for peace in your last days. Today at your private burial service, white doves will guide your spirit to it's final resting place within heavens gates. Christians used Noah's dove as a symbol of peace.
Doves have been a symbol of peace for thousands of years, in part because of the biblical story of the ark, in which a dove bought an olive branch to Noah, showing that dry land was near and the terrible flood would soon be over.
As stated in Matthew 3:16 and Luke 3:22 doves also represent the "Holy Spirit" and it is compared to the dove seen at the "Baptism of Jesus".
According to the biblical story (Genesis 8:11), a dove was released by Noah after the flood in order to find land; it came back carrying an olive branch in its beak, telling Noah that, somewhere, there was land. Rest in paradise my queen of queens. I love you until eternity. -Shana"
"Such a caring and generous person! You surely will be missed. Rest in peace."
"Mommy, I'm out here wondering alone I had to get up early and take a ride through the city because I couldn't sleep and stop thinking about you. A few days ago Porche and I picked you up from the hospital they told us you had days to live and yesterday they called and said you had a few hours BUT GOD. Yesterday was September 8, the no. 8 your pastor told me is the day for new beginnings and I shout glory, holy is thee. I will continue to pray and stand on faith for you with all of our family and friends. You have been healed completely in Jesus name and all the pain and suffering you've been having has turned into joy, and peace. I'm so heartbroken right now but it's not about me, you've taken care of all of us til this very day. I promise to never leave your side and or give up on you. I know battling stage 4 breast cancer is very challenging but I'm up for the challenge, and I wont go astray. I love you more than anyone in this world you're my favorite girl. I love you until eternity queen."
"Dear Family and Friends, As my mommy lay in the hospital bed she wrote love notes about her family, she prophesied over all of us. It's already been done she said to me as I read each of the love notes out loud. I prayed about it but I want you to witness it yourself that's why I ask that you read them yourself, believe in your heart we all have entered into the land of "Jubilee" please receive it by saying Amen if you don't understand what that means totally pray to God for all understanding. -Shana"
"Joanne, It's hard to believe that you're not here. I have prayed for you every since I heard that you were hospitalized, and now you are healed!! Rest in Paradise my friend! Extending Neighborhood love to you and your family always."
