    Now flying on the
    wings of love~

    She was...
    Beauty
    Love

    the...
    essence of all things
    good and true

    Kind hearted
    free spirited with a smile
    brighter than the brightest star

    Unslefishly giving
    unconditionally loving
    people of ALL cultures

    She was...
    the Epitomy of
    God's love

    fulfilling her destiny
    touching lives through her teachings
    on...
    Peace
    Love
    self-love
    respect and the
    importance of forgiveness

    destiny manifest

    She was...
    A cut above the rest

    her mission's complete~
    on an eternal retreat~

    praying at her creator's feet

    feet that have carried her from
    birth to April 29, 2002

    Let Us Rejoice!!!
    It's what she'd want us to do

    As her soul ascends towards
    the heavens
    her spirit will remain in the hearts
    of many here on earth

    watch~as she

    Dances with the Wind


    Judy was the husband of drummer Papa Emile. He's like a father to me and a major influence/role model in my life. His wife died on Monday morning of brain cancer. She spent the last six months of her life in hospice. Before then I cared for her for a while in her home. We expected she'd leave us but it's still a difficult time.
    I only pray that those touched by her kindred spirit will share with others the love that she had for mankind.

    And it has been done!

    In your caring spirit
    You gave comfort with
    no regrets.
    Does God value us and
    those we lost and other's
    the answer is yes.
    Are you greiving though
    you were prepared.
    That is to be expected.
    But when you and she
    meet at Heavens gate
    your deeds will not have
    been rejected.
    For giving to those who
    gave unselfishly is an honor
    not a chore.
    For that my dear Aminata is
    what one of GOD'S children
    is for!
    AND I KNOW YOU BE ONE!
    BLESSING ON YA HOUSE
    AND CONDOLSCENCE TO THE FAMILY:angel1: :angel1: :angel1: :angel1:

    Thanks sis

    we danced at her ceremony...there was no funeral b/c she was cremated.

    As we danced Jalidon, I could feel her spirit and it took me...she touched me and the rain fell...

    it was beautiful! :eek:
