A Beautiful Woman A Beautiful Soul :

Miss Minnie, a beautiful child of God, She always thrived through trials, at odds with none Christ’s love through her flowed from when she was young  until she grew old, Her light shined through  the darkness for all of her days, even when she lost her  mother at a young tender age, Into a mother  herself she grew, three lovely children and  grandchildren too, A blessing to all whose lives she did touch, a blessing to family,  a blessing at church, To God’s little lambs she  taught His word, with always a smile and  love in her heart, She always gave of herself and her time, asking nothing in return not even a dime, But now she’s rich in the  presence of God, and left us behind her memories like Gold!
