Jesus said to the twelve: “If anyone wants to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”
Our family can quote the above Bible verse with joy in our hearts. We know our precious Mother, Sister, Grandmother, Great Grandmother and Aunt is standing before the Throne of God and He’s placing her first.
Throughout her life, she always thought of herself last, putting other people’s needs before her own. She was a servant who served without complaints or questions.
She loved her family profoundly and we will always remember the sacrifices she made for us.
We love you Mama.
