“Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. In my father’s house are many mansions: If it was not so, I would have told you, I got to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am, there he maybe also. And whither I go ye know, and the way ye know.” – John 14:1-4. 
Beatrice Clayton Cohen the daughter of  the late James and Kittie Clayton, was born November 6, 1938 in Waynesville, GA. On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, she heard the Master’s call and she replied, “I’m coming.” 
In her youth, she joined First African Baptist Church.
