In closing I thank God for the blessings in my life, for carrying me when I couldn’t walk. I couldn’t have accomplished going through all that I did without him. Losing my two children is still an unbearable grief. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away. He gave me children to raise, they have been my love, my joy and will always be! We will see each other again! God’s promise. Mom-Nonnie Visitation will be on Friday, July 23, 2021 from 11 to 12 PM at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home. Services will begin at 12 PM in the chapel and the burial will follow at Jefferson Memorial Gardens East.
