    To the family, we the Revelation Missionary Baptist Church extend our sincerest heartfelt condolences. Sis. Young was an exemplary member as well as a trustee with the highest integrity! She "dotted all her i's" and "crossed all her t's" . She was thorough, responsive, willing to give advice as well as seek advice when needed. She was one Class Act! Most of all, she had great faith and "Walked it, like she Talked it"! Although this pandemic stifles our ability to physically extend the love we have for our Dear sister, it does not lessen our feelings. We now connect with this family through the common bond of our beloved Sister Young. And even if this Homegoing celebration is abbreviated, it in no way Fully reflects the rich life, love and the legacy she now leaves with us all. Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal. God Bless You and God Keep you all is our constant prayer. Rev. Todd Ingram Interim Pastor Revelation Missionary Baptist Church Cincinnati,

    Precious memories how they linger, how they ever flood our souls. During our visit to Cincinnati nearly four years ago, we smiled, laughed, reminisced, and ate delicious apple pie that Pauline made especially for us. Although it Is hard right now, the memories of these things and many more will become tools to push away the pain. Our cousin was an amazing woman. Kim and Cheryl, may the care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead.
