Grandma, I would like to thank you for the many life lesson you have taught me. from always placing God first, how to give, not paying of your tithe, keeping a clean house, working hard so, you can have nice things, and carrying yourself like a lady at all times, to name a few.

You are the cornerstone of our family. I thank you for trusting me to be your personal secretary, accountant, errand girl, and confidant, I will truly miss our times together talking about life in the good old days before I was born, of course, when people really knew how to cook, and music was decent enough to listen to.

You where truly my angel here on earth you and your life lessons will never be forgotten. Love Your Black Pearl.

My deepest condolences to all of Ms Reble's family. Some of the granddaughters I was more acquainted with. I send this with tears as I remember Ms Reble at Word Of Life; her fire, her spunk, her love for the Word, her Holy-Ghost dance! When I last saw her at Meadow Grove she did not know me but I am thankful for those few visits with her. Rest in peace Ms. Reble...with love
