We were there to mark her life and her passing. She was 81 years old on July 4th. SHe and Justin would have been married 60 years on Nov 8th this year. It was a beautiful church service, with many family members contributing gospel readings, testimonies, the eulogy and "Amazing Grace", also at the wake.
She was a women who put up a very brave fight, but finally lost her battle. She took care of her family and didn't want to leave them. The mother of many, Lenabell stuck by her family, even those others counted as "lost". Lenabell never had a bad word to say about anyone or them about her.
She was amazing.. She was only give 6 months to live... For almost 5 years she battled the cancer which took her life. She was brave to the end and will be missed by all those who knew her. We will carry her with us throughout our lives, in our our hearts and our precious memories.
