  18. Tony & Bonita Williams says:

    To Rev. Ronnie & Larissa, you have our deepest sympathy. My heart grieves to have my friend (sister) here on earth with us. But God knew she was tired and wanted her to come to heaven and rest. So I take comfort to know she is resting safely in God’s loving arms with no more pain. We have a guardian angel watching over us now. I’m so glad I knew this kind, sweet, God fearing woman that I called one of my many sister/friend, over the years. If you and Larissa, need anything please don’t hesitate to call. Love you both, and to Gayle in Heaven as always before we hung up from talking or seeing each other “ Love You Sis”.
