My wife was a gorgeous being Ms CI and Ms Harris Memorial College during her younger age. She was also a wonderful wife and mother to our two kids. This page is not enough to tell all her services to our family and the church. That’s why I say “sayanfamilypic1g” referring to the time that passed. Perhaps if we knew that her time was limited perhaps we might enjoy more our time, our family and our relationshipHeaven or UFO?: The Liberating Words of Jesus. Read more ... ».

  1. I can feel your heart in this page and I can feel how lucky she was for you as her husband. ‘Though such kind of experience is hurting, to lose a loved one, I believe this made you more than stronger than you ever thought of. God has a wonderful plan in your life, your faithfulness in the Lord always counts. You are a blessing to every people you encounter with. He is your strong tower. Keep up the good work, for all your labors are not in vain……God bless you more…………and more………..and more…..
