I was extremely shocked and sadden to learn Vanessa has transitioned from earth to her heavenly home. It was at the funeral of her grandmother, Mrs. Ella Mae Hamilton, Okahumpka, FL that I inquired as to her presence. I was informed she had passed away. I extend my condolences to your family. I pray God is your strength and comforter. God bless you each, is my prayer.
