Psalm 23

 1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

I love you mother and words cannot express the courage that you have shown all throughout your life. You have also taught me the meaning of commitment, persistence, love, serenity, and hard work. These are enduring qualities that will be passed on through my brother and I as you are our burning light and everlasting candle of hope. I know God is with you and you are enjoying his Grace. 

We love you always, 

Michael and Lewis

Dear Mom, 

I will always love you and never forget you. Without your love and compassion for me and my brother I would have never made it through life. You will be missed very much, but I know you have a better home in heaven with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I look forward to seeing you again in heaven someday. I know you loved me and my brother so much. Words can't even begin to express how much you cared for us. I was so happy that you were able to see me graduate from college, without you I would have never graduated. Your kind and caring heart will never fail, you will be missed by many people. I was blessed to have the opportunity to read your bible and be there by your side just before you passed from death unto life in Jesus Christ. I know you are in heaven and having a good time and I can't wait to see you again soon. 

Your loving son, 

Lewis

Dear Mom,

We will always love you and never forget you. Words can never express how much we love you. Thank you for everything you have done for us throughout our lives. Thank you for teaching us the meaning of commitment, persistence, love, serenity, and hard work. These are enduring qualities that we will always remember.

You were always there for us whenever we needed you. Your kind and loving heart will never fail. We love you mom. You are the best mom in the world. You will always be in our hearts and memories till we met again in heaven, when we shall sing that old spiritual, “Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound”. We miss you mom, we thank God that He gave us you to be our loving mother.

Your Loving Sons,

Lewis & Michael
