I just finished reading all of the amazing and kind words about my mother Josephine (To check it out Google James L. McFadden and look under "Woman found dead at Milerton Lake". It was my mother... As my eyes watered reading all of your comments I realized something. My God in heaven actually allowed me to meet a real "ANGEL". For those of you who knew her, you know exactly what I mean... She was the best of the best!!! The greatest example of what God intended a woman to be and a soldier of his kingdom to be! I can't explain it... What is was like being raised and loved by her. No matter what struggle life put in our way, she made the world a beautiful place. When you were near her it became easier to breathe. She had a way of making you believe in yourself! She was a fan of people and life... Her goal in life was to make others smile! To help others prosper! She was my mother, my father, my protector, my teacher and my HERO!!! All I am today is because of her... I have 4 children, 2 step children, and a God sent wife that I could only have been blessed with because of her prayers for me to find my true love! I've been in business for 18 years now. I'm 40 years old, healthy and have no health issues (by the grace of God). I'm working on a business project that may mean millions of dollars for my business and family. And I say all this to say that all these things I have I owe to my BREATH TAKINGLY BEAUTIFUL MOTHER!!! She taught me so much. But most of all she taught me how to love & believe in myself. I remember we had a conversation the month before she died on her birthday. She told me to get out of the relationship I was in at the time. She told me I was the best father she could hope for me to be. She said she was proud of me as her son. And the words I will never forget... She told me if she have had the husband she always wanted he would be someone just like me!!! She melted my soul with those words.. And it was then that I truly with no doubt had belief in myself and I had found how to put myself first and love me!!! Which is something I had lost focus of... I say this because as I read all of your testimonies I feel that what my mother was so great at was... LOVING!!! And making others feel LOVED!!! She made you believe! And if you knew her you knew God!!! I remember she told me I was a one in a million. As I smiled at her, she explained why... She said son, you know how a man and woman has kids right? And as I chuckled, she explained how there are millions of tiny sperm that try to get into a woman's egg, and that out of all those millions of sperm... You made it!!! There for you are a one in a million!!! To all of you who read this, to all of you who knew her, to everyone in this world... I James L. McFadden give you the words of my extraordinary mother, God's eternal soldier and a real life angel... YOU ARE A ONE IN A MILLION!!!! Don't let anyone ever tell you any different! Believe in yourself! Love yourself! And while you read this and after your done, raise your head, put out your chest and say... I AM A ONE IN A MILLION!!! Because a Angel named Josephine Roman Gilliard said so!!! Thank God for you mom! And for those of you who wish you knew her, just close your eyes and think of the most beautiful thing you've ever seen... And try hard! I mean really hard! And once you've seen the beautiful image, multiply it by a billion and there you go! My mother, Josephine. She mentored children, she raised children, she loved everyone, she was a blessing to all who knew her, and I believe a blessing to you if you fully have read all of these wonderful things about her. As my mom would have said if you knew her, God bless you and I love you!!!
