As you celebrate the setting of my sun, may you always remember the times we've shared and the memories that we've made. May the peace of God that surpasses all understanding guard your hearts and your minds through Christ Jesus. I want each of you to remember my smile, which was as bright as the stars in the sky. Remember my laughter, which was like the beautiful sound of ocean water. Through all the pain and suffering, remember the joy that I brought into your lives.

A child is a beautiful gift from God Almighty. On July 4, 1958, in New York, Naomi White was blessed with a handsome baby boy.
