Roma Riddick Obituary

"ALL day and ALL night ANGELS are watching over the Riddick Family"

"I shall wear a crown, When it's all over, I shall see His face, When it's all over.
I'm going to put on my robe, tell the story how I made it over
I'm going to put on my robe, tell the story how I made it over
I'm going to put on my robe, tell the story how I made it over
Soon as I get home..."
