My aunt Bessie was one of the funniest people. She and my mother, Imojean, would have us all rolling on the floor some times. I think back on the days gone by and it puts a smile on my face. I have been blessed beyond measure to have such a good family, and I know that some day we will be together again, all of us, on the golden streets of heaven. Yahweh has given me more gifts than I even know about. Bessie was one of those gifts, and I thank him every day for all he has given to me. I love all of you.
