DAVIS, WILMA SUE (Sue) –
On Monday November 6th, 2017, the chorus of pianos in Heaven began playing more sweetly and the choir above now sings louder. A son rejoicing above and a son crying below. A church falls silent, its piano still. When the piano played by this good woman’s touch, all who heard said she was a Saint amongst us--but she too modest to believe it. But on this day, the Saint Row has been added by one. We desire the Lord to keep her here forever, but the Lord above has called, and the angels rejoice. She wears the crown of righteousness.
