For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.2 Timothy 4:6-8
In His infinite wisdom and gentle grace, Almighty God reached down from Heaven and whispered ever so quietly to one of His children these words: "Come with me my daughter for it's time to go home" and so it was Monday, October 31, 2022 God closed the eyes of our beloved Annie Mae.
