“My name is Shelia Smith. I just want you to know that I have moved on. Don’t cry for me because I was received by Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior. My new home is ready and waiting for me. It is an awesome sight – my view is the crystal water and streets of gold. I can’t talk about it too much because I want you to see it one day for yourself. There is no sun or moon as the love of God is our light. The only emotion here is happiness. I don’t feel pain, I no longer cry, my body is new and that’s why I must say good bye.”

      This is Sheila’s Daughter Noreka (Berneida Smith).

      I wanted to meet you so bad. I wanted to finally understand why I am who I am. I searched for you to no avail. My heart mourns for you Mom. I love you because you loved me first and showed that love through sacrifice.

      Love you always! See you in due time, amen.

      Family, if you’re out there, I would love to hear from you and learn about Mom.
