ELLA RENFROW ROBINSON:
76 years, 5 months, 23 days
As a young boy I remembered she loved humming old spirituals while moving her feet and praising the Lord; she really enjoyed that as well reading her Bible. Grandmom always made and prepared large meals that included her wonderful buttermilk biscuits that was served with molasses; honey or her delicious peach preserves that she canned each season. She had a new song in heart everyday before she went to heaven. Even though her health began to fail she had a song deep down in her spirit that remained until the Lord called her home. Her deep love for the Lord is the lasting legacy she leaves the family. To this union eight children were born; Ratha, Pvt John William, Luna Mae infant daughter died at infancy, Ethel, Rev. Josephine, Bruce "SU" and the twins; Ella R. Cofer and Stella.

Grandmother's favorite Bible passage was John 14: 1-3 verses."Let not your heart be troubled; ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my Father's house are many mansions. If it not so, I would have told. I go to prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

"God has a little garden of his own and chooses flowers that are fully grown. When he took a walk and chose this one, He said don't worry it's my will be done. I have the one who is ready to see, to come home and rejoice with me." ~Stella Cofer
