Luara M Morgan "Necklace" is missing from the Hotal room.

Mother this is a nother of your daughter Joke.
or what ever on her mine..We went to Georgia "HOME GOING SERVICE" on Saturday March 3, 2012 and Laura rent car broke down and she wonted me to sleep in her room until she get here but I didn,t.I got my own room. Laura.Carlee and Gail got to waycross,Georida and about 12:30pm they didn,t get a room they wonted to stay in the room with Larry and me. so they did... so I just got a call from her that a necklace is missing and did i see it in the Hotal room?
I remember when we was in deerfield.Florida and i got sleeply and Laura told me to see in her Room and I did..the next week her mother "my mother-in-law told me that Laura told her. that why I was in her room sleeply Her money came up missing..AND YOUR "MOM" said only Gail took that money. I just didn't say nother, when mother said that to me.
So this is just one of the reason why I dont trust your daughter today. I live in my own House and she always have some to say. She stayed in my hotel room and something come up missing."SO SHE SAID" I will never invite her to stay my house because of her life style. and I know her like to ADD to thing knowing that it not true. How can I trust a person like Laura..Yet I love her, But I but I dont care to be around her. She wont to be someone that she could never be. or wont to be more then she is...But God is watching everything she say or do...
what is her point? Just a question that because only God's know. Lord keep your light on me. And just take care of me like you always have because this world and the people in it is not mine, they are your...and with you GOD I will be alright...
and God, I know you know how My sister Laura M Ashe Morgan is.

Another Child of your is home resting in your care

Carl Lee Pass on Jan. 5, 2013. and today 2.14,2013 we buried him on your son Larry Ashe "birthday"
