“God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be, so he put His arms around you
and whispered, “Come to me.” With tearful eyes we watched you as you slowly slipped away and though we loved you dearly, we couldn't make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating, your tired hands put to rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us that He only takes the best.”
Mrs. Willie Mae Johnson Moore, was born July 17, 1943 in Lumberton, North Carolina to the late Isaiah Johnson and Katie Bention Johnson. She was the fourth of nine children.
