    His spirit was like no other~

    Kind and Generous,
    Loving and Humble,
    Knowledgeable,
    So humorous

    Uncle R.C.,
    Was full of life

    He spoke to me (everyone) with words of encouragement
    Contributed his many “Pearls of Wisdom”
    He loved, as God loved the world

    The clouds were so pure and white,
    The sky was of the clearest blue
    The suns rays’ were so radiant

    On God’s perfect day,
    Heavens gates opened,
    The trumpet sounded
    And God’s soft, tender voice called,
    “Robert Curtis Bass”

    Tears fell as his spirit gracefully ascended
    Family gathered around and leaned on one another
    Knowing, God’s Will had been done

    Through life’s obstacles,
    Uncle “Arcy” stayed the course,
    overcame the battle,
    and won his race

    He has crossed the finish line,
    and now joyfully rests at Jesus’ feet.


    ~ $RICH$, my heart is with you and the rest of OUR family
    We know that God has a devoted and righteous man on his right side.
    Look to the hills, whence comest our help
    The Lord is with us as we rejoice in our loved ones home going

    Your cousin ~ Blk Kween

    consolation

    Preparation can be a beautiful thing.

    In my most recent experiences, it is a sad time...

    BUT, the consolation is so GREAT when you know that they right with GOD..and you know they have ascended
    the consolation is great when you know the pain and trials they went through...you find consolation in knowing they are now pain free...and now they TRULY LIVE

    Good to be back, thank you.

    I haven't been doing too much of any writing in the past year.

    The death of my grandmother did something to me...I have had plenty to say, but the pen ink had dried...

    Needless to say, my mood showed it all. It's been quite frustrating...

    Thanks for the prayers...they are much needed.
