Helen Delorise (Pettus) Wilson

October 6, 1951 ~ March 20, 2018 (age 66)

“God is the joy and the strength of my life, 
He moves all pain, misery, and strife.
He promised to keep me, never to leave me.
He's never ever come short of His word.
I've got to fast and pray, stay in His narrow way, 
I've got to keep my life clean everyday; 
I want to go with Him when He comes back, 
I've come to far and I'll never turn back.God is, God is, God is, God is...God is my all and all”
