I will greatly miss our daily calls and texts, talks and laughter! Especially our testimonies …" I have a testimony today that the Lord will make away, can't explain what I feel but I know that God is Real. And I want the whole World to know that He is wonderful to me!" Friends to the end, Laurine! Love ❤️ Sister San
