16 I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being,
17so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
18may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ,
19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
20 Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,
21 to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Please continue to pray for Gail M. Smith and her family.
Birdie Mae Little Spitale
March 05, 1931 – March 08, 2018
On March 8th 2018 Birdie Mae Little Spitale said her final goodbye to her daughters to join her Lord and mother in heaven. On this day, March 8th, she also joined her husband on his birthday. She passed away after a long struggle with dementia at Tangi Pines Nursing Center. She was a native of Arcola and a resident of Amite. She was born to Hulon and Irma Smith Little on March 5, 1931 as Birdie Mae Little. Over the years, she worked very hard on the family farm. Also, she worked at Currier’s Cleaners, B. Stern’s, Tangi Pines Nursing Center, Amite Elementary, and Amite High School. Upon retiring, she enjoyed reading, LSU Football (especially Mike the Tiger), and going out to eat. In the last few months of her life, she enjoyed dining at Murphy’s in Amite where everyone treated her with much kindness. She leaves behind her 2 daughters, Debra and Kathy Spitale who will miss her dearly. She raised them to be strong independent women with strength to endure life without her but she will always and forever be with them. She is also survived by her brother, Ray Little, and numerous nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her husband, Lee A. Spitale; sisters, Muriel Heth, Daphne “Pat” Hayden, and Wilma Lois Brown; brothers, Cecil Little, Robert Little, and Louis J. Little; parents, Hulon and Irma Smith Little.
