Ms,Debi, Ms.Phyllis,Ms.Yvonne & Family of ( Ms. Etta )Your Mother was an amazing Lady, When I've saw her in the past she always spoke. and all the wonderful Memories from Bingo, it was a pleasure and honor to know Mom Etta.God saw Ms. Etta getting tired and a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around her and whispered Come to Me. With tearful eyes we watched you, and saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hardworking hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best!!!
