A limb has fallen from the family tree that says grieve not for me, but remember the best times, the laughter, that we shared, and the song The Good Life I lived while I was STRONG.
We paused to celebrate the beloved life of Betty Ann Mahomes with hearts of grief and great sadness. We mourn her passing, but celebrate her life by carrying on her legacy along with our many memories.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, and I have remained faithful. And now the prize awaits me—the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give me on the day of his return. And the prize is not just for me but for all who eagerly look forward to his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:7-8 NLT
