    With outstretched hands and open heart on behalf of the Acree family, I extend my most sincere and heart-felt condolences. It is with a heavy heart I write this because she was and always will be a true gem. God saw that his garden was getting a little crowded so he went out and began to prune. He saw one of his most beautiful flowers and he sweetly whispered, "My child your work is done on earth. Come rest in me for I have prepared your place here in the skies." She's only sleeping in the arms of Jesus. She just transitioned from labor here on earth to reward in heaven with our father, and she is looking down on all of you. God bless all of you, God keep all of you, and remember there is no sorrow that heaven can not heal, and no hurting heart God can't mend. We love all of you. Respectfully submitted, SGT Yatasha L.
