Dear Sharon,

Doris Versaw, Jesus' precious daughter, who was like a 2nd mom to many, taking them under her wing's . Her smile tell's it all, that she lived in kindness, and love for other's. You truly will be first in heaven, right by Jesus' side. For the first will be last, and the last will be first. Your example and your life will live on in many heart's, as an example of a true child of God! The LORD is surely pleased with you and until that fine day, when we all reunite in paradise, may we strive to be more like Jesus, as you were in so many ways! May our heart's beat with memories of you every day.

For years and years Uncle Bob and Aunt Doris were like Grandparents to my 4 children! What memories we have! They were so good to me when I helped care for Lloyd and Lilly Versaw too. But they are together now with Jesus!

Clearly your Mother made a difference for the Kingdom. Her love for the lil ones so beautifully brought to my mind Jesus love for the children. And, His clear instruction how we need to become as little children if we are to inherit Kingdom of Heaven. Grateful that God has answered prayers to bring just the right people to surround you with the tangible support you need to navigate the logistics of honoring your Mother and her or heart for souls. You are frequently in my prayers and will continue to be. Love you dear friend and sister in Christ.
