A Love Note To all my family and friends.
don't bring me any flowers because I won't be here to see them, and I won't be here to smell them.
Don't cry over me, just think of me the way I was. But I’ve gone into another room where there's no
more pain no more suffering, I’m in a better place now I'm home with my God. Everybody look up and
not down be strong just put God first, God is the answer I love you all.
“Cheryl G. McKinney Jones”
