Latisha Smith

September 27, 2021

Latisha Smith was a loving and devoted mother to her beautiful daughter Serenity Conyers. Latisha enjoyed calling and singing to her daughter each morning as well as Serenity reading books to her. Latisha’s passion was to share the Lord to her daughter and everyone she met. She made an impact on many lives and the Lord called her home on Monday September 27, 2021 and is saying “Well Done Thy Good and Faithful Servant”.

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”

1 Thes. 4:13-18 "But we do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as indeed the rest of mankind do, who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose from the dead, so also God will bring with Him those who have fallen asleep through Jesus. For we say this to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will not precede those who have fallen asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive, who remain, will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air, and so we will always be with the Lord. Therefore, comfort one another with these words."

It's definitely a sad day. I came by earlier for the viewing but it had not started yet. Just wanted to thank you for the times you were like a Big Sister and tried to keep me and Chris in line. You were always kind and loving. It is good to know you are in a better place pain free.
