A Celebration of Life
Johnnie "Mae" Trottie Smith
'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 of them also that love his appearing." - II Timothy 4:7 & 8
On July 3, 2014 * One we loved and knew stepped across the threshold that we call death, but it was only a step into another room and not stepping out of Fellowship of Life...but it was a stepping into one of the other rooms of Our Father's House.
