Tributes To Our Mother

Lorenzo McGowan - My mom was very sweet, down to earth and very funny in her own way. She would give you the shirt off back. She will always be in my heart and I will always love her.

Chandra Weaver - Our beautiful mother was the best of the best of all mothers, to know her was to lover her. She was a God fearing woman that loved the Lord with all of her heart and soul. Everyone that she encountered, she talked about the Lord and tried to get them to come to church. Our mother was loved by many. She was not only our mother, but it seemed like everyone that she encountered, she became a mother figure to them. Our beautiful mother will surely be missed by us and many others. We love you Mother.

Sharon McGowan- Thank God for blessing us with such a beautiful loving Mom. She was an excellent example of God’s grace and love. She God, her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, everyone.

Serena Jackson – God gave us a start that radiated love. She spoke Jesus with great power, but she was as gentle as a dove. This power changed the lives of addicts and those who suffered trauma. This power brought peace where there was shame, everlasting in our hearts. This love legacy shall remain.

Maxine Harris – My Mom is the Epitome of Love 1 Corinthians 13:4-78 (NIV)(4) Love is patient, Love is kind it does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
