  1. To Reginald and your entire family: May God be with you all in this trying time. I remember your mother very well and she is a wonderful woman. There is nothing like a mothers love but God loved her best. You all keep your head up high and let God be your guide. God will not put nothing on you that you cannot bare. My prayers are with you all and let God be the comforter. Remember God makes no mistakes. He made Mrs. Stokes! RIP Mrs. Stokes. From Willard Johnson
