  1. I pray for the family during this most difficult time. May each of you find strength during your loss.

  2. Praying for strength and faith for the family as they go through this storm. We loved Ms Shirley and will never forget her or that smile. The Bountiful Blessing family will not be the same without Ms. Shirley sitting on the Mothers Board. Sharon, “Whenever you do not understand what’s happening in your life, just close your eyes, take a deep breath and say,(God, I know its your plan, just help me through it). We love you if you need us we are here even if it just conversation. God got this and you and the family. Mama said to let you know all of you are in her prayers.

  3. My Sweet Matriarch. You will be missed so much. But I am grateful for the love and guidance you gave me the past 37 years of my life. You are with me forever Gran.

  11. Heaven has gained another angel, you will truly be missed!!!

  12. Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection and the life:he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.
    – John 11:25
    Often times we go through grief at the passing of a Love one, not because we don’t have faith, but we love them so much that we want them to remain here with us. But we must realize that God loves them even more, and that His desire for ones life is greater than our desire for them to remain. Just imagine heaven, imagine being before the throne of God, imagine sitting at the feet of Jesus, where there’s no pain, no suffering, nor out cry but praises to The Lamb of God forever.
    Take my spirit Lord
    Take my spirit Lord fly it high away. For when I enter into your kingdom I’ll dwell there night and day. I know I’ll be protected at all times, for I am yours Lord and you are mine. So take my spirit Lord, carry it into your mansion place. For I’ll no loner be in pain Lord, nor have time to daze. I’ll enter into your kingdom, for there I will truly rest, and sing Glory Hallejuah for I’ll be at my best. There’ll be no more sickness for my sorrows are now gone. I’ll Praise you Always, for I’ve finally made it home.

  13. I wrote the previous comment last Name mispelled.

  14. My God bless and keep your family. May he strengthen you in a time such as this. For Jesus said I am the resurrection and the life, he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live. – John11:25
