Mrs. Bessie Harrell Coe Resident of Brownfield

I just wanted to let you know that I made it home I just wanted to let you know that I made it home. The journey wasn't an easy one, but it didn't take too long. Everything is so pretty here, so white, so fresh and new. I wish that you could close your eyes and that you could see it too. Please try not to be sad for me. Try to understand God is taking care of me...I'm in the shelter of His hands. Here there is no sadness, no sorrow, and no pain. Here there is no crying and I'll never hurt again. Here it is so peaceful when all the angels sing. I really have to go for now... I've just got to try my wings.

My heartfelt condolences to the family (my granddaughter, grand son-in law, grand, great & two great-grand kids). One other game she loved to play that wasnt in the Obituary was dominoes! I know from personal experience. Like me she was competitive but we had fun playing at her sons home in Glendale, AZ. I grew up as neighbors of the Harrell family in Bfield and Bessie was one year and one month old when I left for the Army in June of 1964. I missed seeing her growing up but what I got to see was good and fun. Well meet again in Glory where itll be joy, laughter an singing praises for an eternity.Apos.
