Mother was one of many words; however, her last were not spoken with an earthly voice, but in a spiritual
language of the LORD with a band of Angels. I can only imagine it went something like this:
As darkness overcame the light and getting a breath becomes harder, in a distance a light appears and
Angels approach singing “O-Come Angel Band.” A voice emerges saying, “It is time, and your battle is over. We
have been sent by the Master to guide you to the Holy resting Alter at the throne of the LORD.”
Mother replies, “What do you mean it is time, how can this be? I was born on November 7, 1957 to a loving
Mother, Rosie, Father, Gardner, and Sister of Bulah Fay, Aster, Joyce, Bonnie Lou, Janet, Lester Wayne and
David Lee. Growing up I felt the presence of the LORD and responded to His calling at the Little Bull Creek Old
Regular Baptist Church on November 19, 1978. I met and fell in love with a wonderful man, Clifford; we were
wed on July 9, 1979. Together as a couple and with blessings from the LORD, we became a family and brought
forth a son on October 31, 1980. On July 18, 1998 the church examined my companion for the office of a
Deacon and me as his helpmate. I stood with and helped him in any way I could. It doesn’t seem possible, I had
so much more planned to do.” Mother lowers her head and slowly raises it and says, “A little more time with my
husband and to guide my son if you please?” The Angel replies, “The Master will watch over and care for them
for He has made the arrangements and everything is under control. Come our beloved Sister and take our
hands, the Master has prepared your resting place and awaits your arrival at the throne.”
Mother once again pauses and lowers her head, and with tears falling from her cheeks reaches and takes the
Angel’s hands. As Angels gather around they begin to walk toward the light singing rejoicefully “I Have Been
Redeemed by the Blood of The Lamb.” As they reach the brightest portion of the light an image approaches and
a voice rings out saying, “Thank you, my children. I will take it from here” and takes Mother’s hands and says,
“Child, your resting place is ready until the appointed time.”
As Mother moves forward and lays back, she smiles, takes a deep breath and releases it. As the breath
leaves her body and her earthly heart stops, it began a peaceful rest in Paradise.
*** Mom - We love and miss you more than any words could ever say. That is why Dad and I did not say good-
bye, but farewell for a spell because we are trying to walk the straight and narrow path so we can be together
again. Save us a space on each side.

In the fall of November 7 in the year of 1957 in our Lord, a beautiful little girl was born to Gardner and Rosie
Jent and her name was Lois.
Throughout her life she grew up to be a beautiful young woman. As years went by Lois felt she needed the
Lord in her life so on November 19, 1978 she was baptized.
Then later on she met and fell in love with Clifford Fields and was married. They had one son, Clifford Wade.
Lois loved her church and she loved the Lord.
As time went on, her husband, Clifford, was chosen as a deacon and through the rest of her life she served
well as his helpmate. But there came the time when she was stricken down with cancer. She bore her sickness
without complaints. She only lived about four months with it and then God called her home, but she’s at rest
under God’s alter. She loved to spend as much time as she could with her friends and neighbors in the church.
Lois, your work is done so sleep on and your labor is over.

TOMORROW WITHOUT ME
When tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not there to see;If the sun should rise and find your eyes filled with
tears for me;I wish you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,while thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,and each time you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,that angels came, called my name, took me by
the hand,and said my place was ready in Heaven far above,and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly
But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye,for all life, I’d always thought I didn’t want to die.I had so
much to live for and so much yet to do,it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad,I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we
If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for awhile,I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.But
then I fully realized that this could never be,for emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things that I’d miss come tomorrow,I thought of you, and when I did, my heart
was filled with sorrow.
But when I walk through Heaven’s gates with you, we’ll feel so much at home. When God looks down and
smiles on us, from His great golden throne. He’ll say, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you”.
Today life on earth is past, but here it starts anew.I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last,
and since each day’s the same day, there’s no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful, so trusting, and so true,Though there were times you did some things you knew
you shouldn’t do.But you have been forgiven and now at last you’re free,So won’t you take my hand and share
my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart,
for every time you think of me, I’m in your heart.
