  4. I am so sorry for you loss. Zelda was one of the sweetest ladies I’ve ever met. She was a perfect example of what a Christian should look like, act like, and just be. It’s been a few years since I’d seen her but I no she was the same always has been from the first time I met her. She loved everyone and found good in everyone. I no she was the glue that held the family together . I also no she wouldn’t wants any of you settling around crying for her instead celebrate her life. She where she’s been working all these years to be. Awe to see the look on her face when she saw Jesus and Heaven. I can just imagine and now she’s in Heaven singing with the beautiful angels. Love you all
