My Aunty Beulah will never be forgotten. From the first day that my youthful eyes beheld her presence, I knew she was someone special. I can remember as if it was yesterday as I watched her intently, preparing an omelet and then inviting me to join her at the dining table along with my Mother who was her eldest Sister and my Aunty Elaine. It was the greatest feeling ever to be surrounded by these great women. It was my introduction to who the Archer Sisters were in relationship with each other. Oh what a Joy! Oh what Love and Sisterhood that overtook the room. I felt like a child in the Candy Store because this was indeed a priceless moment.
Although Aunty Beulah has always lived thousands of miles away (Different Providences) upon every visit or encounter, her embrace remained the same...arms that were loving, giving and nurturing.
Aunty Beulah has always reminded me of my mother; so much that when my mother transitioned to be with the Lord in 2010, I felt that I still had an extension of her because they shared the same DNA... and I could experience my mother through different aspects of Aunty Beulah.
I have not seen Aunty Beulah for quite some time but I carried her in my heart and my prayers. On December 13, 2020, I received a message from Uncle John saying that Aunty Beulah was back in the hospital and as I was about to pray, I felt prompted to record the prayer and send it to Uncle John.
About a week later, Uncle John notified me how Aunty Beulah was progressing and he simultaneously thanked me, for the prayer that was sent. It touched my heart deeply when He said that he and Aunty Beulah were listening to the prayer together and that Aunty Beulah requested to listen to it more than once.
At that moment I thanked God for permitting me the opportunity, to not only pray but to share a moment with my Aunt who I was carrying in my heart. Athough I couldn't be there physically to serve her I will be forever grateful that we shared some final moments in prayer. I have many other memories of Aunty Beulah but this one, I will hold dear..
Aunty Beulah has ran a great race: for truly she has touched many beyond her Family with the Ministry that God gave to her.
She has demonstrated the life of a true Soldier in the Army of the Lord; enduring in Faith to the end...
I will greatly miss Aunty Beulah; her voice, laughter and warm embrace but now every Birthday that I celebrate hereafter, beyond 2022, will not only be my Birthday but, the day that Aunty Beulah's physical house was laid to rest. Forever Loving my Aunt...Dianne..
I have such fond memories of Sister Wright. Will miss her beautiful smile .
My condolence to one of the best choir director ever. Her legacy will live on
A very loving and talented woman. One of our mothers!
The Lord strengthen and carry this family through this difficult season. May the God of all comfort begin to comfort your hearts as only he can. May you find peace in knowing that Sis. Wright is with the Lord and is out of her suffering. The Lord comfort you with this knowledge. Our prayers are with you all. God bless.
