I thank God for the pleasure to have known such a wonderful woman like Mrs. Carole. She had a beautiful smile and warm heart. Sending heartfelt condolences to you all her family. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you, and if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also. May God to continue to strengthen your hearts. Fonda Robinson- Richmond, Va.
