It’s amazing how God knew exactly who to connect you with before he created the heavens and earth. Meaning family, friends, husbands, and/or wives. Everyone has a season in your life. Once God has connected you, it is then your responsibility to walk in and learn from that person/season. If and once that season is over, whether be it death or departure, there is No Love Lost or Loss. No!! In fact, Love is Magnified.

Often times we take for granted our siblings and how much we value them until of course what we think to be a “tragedy” occurs.

But there’s something about when Susta died that didn’t seem so…”tragic”. You ask, “where is she going with this?”

November 27, 2012 my sister decided to go be with The Lord. Yes we cried and for our own selfish reasons asked God — WHY?
But the memories and the LOVE wouldn’t allow us to weep the way we thought we should when losing someone so dear. It was like all the memories and warmth of her spirit kept a smile on our face and laughter in our hearts. God set that thing up so perfectly.

You see, before my Susta said YES to The Lord, she touched the lives of so many! She taught me everything I needed to know. We spent the best Thanksgiving day together with close family and friends. And the Lord made it possible for her to see and/or speak to everyone that was dear to her before she left this earth :-)

So when people look at me tilt their head and say, “I’m sorry” I say to them “It’s ok, it was a beautiful goodbye”!

Such a marvelous thing to have you as my mother. To see you take on the responsibility of performing your daughter’s eulogy is like no other experience I’ve ever known.

Susta loves when I act silly! Even at the gravesite! lol

Before Susta left this earth, she placed me in the care of the Distinguished Ladies Chapter 969. And boy have they (and brother John) taken on the responsibility of being my big siSTARS so beautifully.

Susta’s lovely husband Bobby, best friend Tamara, and close friend of the family Sandra have played a significant role in assisting mama and I with everything. (Also in picture)

Smile! It’s a CELEBRATION!
