"G-ma you have always been kind and loving, solid in your faith in God. You have been and will continue to be my angel. God saw you getting tired, a cure not meant to be, so he put his arms around you and said, 'Come with me.' I half-willingly released your hand to put it in yours and my Father's." Love Always, Sherri Sue

Local arrangements are with Seymour Funeral Home and Cremation Service, Goldsboro, N.C.
