2 Timothy 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. Yes Sissy you have run a good race and I’ll miss you dearly. No more phone calls talking about the Bible, current events, our children, our grandchildren, or our great grandchildren. No more phone calls singing “Happy Birthday To You” for you have gone on home to Heaven to be with the Lord. May you rest in peace my good friend, and may you dance and sing in the presence of the Lord for you have earned every minute of it. And to the family that you left behind, may you all find peace and joy in knowing what a true blessing Sissy was to all of you for all who knew Sissy loved her dearly, and all who loved her dearly will miss her every day. Sissy, I’ll see you in Heaven one day.
