Alease Renee Calhoun-Neal was an adored wife, loving mother, awesome grandmother, wonderful sibling and devoted friend to all who knew her. Babe was called home to be with the Lord when He called her name. It is to no surprise of the gifts He also wanted to give her along with her wings. On October 12, 2020, heaven lit up with a mighty presence as the angels all looked down. Today the Lord was placing the jewels into our mother’s crown. He held up a golden crown as our darling mother looked on. He said in His gentle voice, "I will now explain each one.  The first gem He said is a ruby. It’s for endurance alone and for all the nights you waited up for your family to come home; for all the nights by their bedside and you stayed till the fever went down; for nursing every little wound, I add this ruby to your crown.  An emerald, I’ll place by the ruby for leading your family in the right way; for teaching them the lessons that made them who they are today; for always being right there through all life’s important events. I give you a sapphire stone for the time and love you spent; for untying the strings that held them when they grew up and left work or home. I give you this one for courage." Then the Lord added a garnet stone. "I’ll place a stone of amethyst," He said, "For all the times you spent on your knees when you asked if I’d take care of your children and husband also for having faith in Me. I have a pearl for every little sacrifice that you made without them knowing and for all the times you went without to keep them happy, healthy and growing. And last of all I have a diamond, the greatest one of all. This is for sharing unconditional love whether they were big or small. It was your love that helped them grow and had your family feeling safe, happy and proud. With a love so strong and pure, it could shift the darkest cloud." After the Lord placed the last jewel in, He said, "Your crown is now complete and you’ve earned your place in Heaven where your children and husband one day will meet you at your feet."
