You were our leader

Vilma Gomes

From our childhood days, you have been not only a sister but a friend as well. You were the leader among the five of us and the guidance and advice you gave us will remain in our hearts forever.

You were also our teacher during our young days. You were methodical and had strong faith in our Saviour. You were fortunate to have an equally good husband and together with him, you raised a good Christian family.

You prayed for all of us even when you were sick. In return, we never failed to remember you in our prayers every day. We praise and thank God as we were a united family, sharing our problems, enjoying the happy times we have had together and for your beautiful life.

Although your parting brings us much sorrow, we are happy that you are now safe in the arms of Jesus. Your memory will linger in our hearts forever, until we meet on that beautiful shore.

May your dear soul rest in Peace with Jesus. We will always remember your love and guidance as we count our many blessings.

Vyville, Beulah, Cynthia and Myrna
