Even a year later It is with great sadness to know that you have had such a loss.....

However, she is in a better place doing what she was created for: That is Praising our Lord and Savior around the throne with that Angelic voice of hers

May the Lord watch and keep The McClurkin family both now and ever;

I am so so sorry. I only just heard the sad news of Olivia's passing. I'm sadden as I recall Pastor Donnie joining us to worship at Bethel CC here in the UK a couple of years ago and making mention of what God is doing. It was so encouraging. I pray that tho Olivia has gone on to be with the Lord her striving thru the face of adversity with the power of faith that she had will encourage others. McClurkin Family do what you do for the Lord, for you are blessed.

His Love and mine also
Andrea Baker-Reid
