“My mother in the Lord went home two nights ago, Betty Lasher. I sobbed. I rose and wrote a poem, 53 years ago she changed my life. I spoke to her last month. You said you are too fast, I am not hearing you too well.
“I sensed in my spirit, that her time had come. Her aide had to talk to me and tell it to her one by one. She went upstairs like a saint. She was 92 on her last birthday. Let me give you a clip, Sweet Mother, Sweet Savour, Sweet Memory."

Lasher is in her mansion

The man of God expressed certainty that his deceased mentor is now in her mansion in heaven wearing a crown for all her labours, adding that whoever is saved in his ministry will be credited to her account.
