March 21, 2008 Dear James, Bess, Georgia, George,
May peace be with you all at this most difficult time. Your mother
touched many people in this world and stopped the suffering of so
many. It’s time she received Gods rewards for all she has done. I
know you will miss her, as will I, but think of how happy and pain
free she must be right now as she dances on the streets of Gold. My
prayers are with you all. God bless. Jimmy Moss
