    Mom was a very loving, caring, giving, compassionate, spiritual, faith filled, kind, sweet person and she was always doing for others. She worked at the Coca Cola Factory In Indianapolis, IN and then for Visiting Nurse Association and Visiting Nurse Plus in Evansville, Indiana. She lost her husbsnd, John Wesley White Jr., and had to raise 5 kids from 17 to 3 yrs old. She also had to learn to drive and balance a checkbook. She was a very strong woman and very independent. She will always be my hero/heroin and my best friend. No one could ever take her place. She also gave the best hugs. She loved people and she witnessed until the very end because she wanted to make sure that everyone knew that God so loved the world that He gave His Only begotten Son(Jesus) as a sacrifice for Our sins and whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. All we have to do is repent of our sins(ask for forgiveness for every wrong we have done) and ask God into our hearts and live the best we can for him. All it takes is believing and trusting God and it only takes enough faith as a grain of mustard seed . If you’ve ever seen how small and tiny a mustard seed is then you would know that it only takes a small amount of Faith. The King James Bible tells us in John 3:16 “For God so loved the world…that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life
