    Philippians 3:14


    Brethren, I do not regard myself as having laid hold of it yet; but one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and reaching forward to what lies ahead, 14I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. 


     


    So today dear friends let not the troubles of this world keep you down. Yet rise and live beyond all adversities. Today I can go on another day because I know my SiStar lived unto GOD purposefully yielding into her everlasting destiny. She leaves to mourn her a beautiful family; Husband, two daughters and a son. A loving and devoted Mother, Best Elder sister, and favored nephew and a host of other family and friends.
