My dearest mother-in-law, I am heartbroken that you are no longer here. But I am so happy to have made so many fond memories with you that I will forever cherish. My girls and I really loved you and you will forever live in our hearts. You've been a part of my life since I was 18! You are my baby girls grandma, and I will forever be (as you always told me) your daughter-in-law. We love you Queen. Take your rest.
Sha, Nya'h, and Deanni

My condolences to Wanda and Brenda and the rest of the family. Your mom was such a sweet and funny lady too. I remember the times I would be going to 8th street to the store or whatever and she'll be sitting on bench always smiling a saying hello sometimes I would stop and chit chat for a minute. Keep ya'll head up she did a wonderful job with you. She looked beautiful and ya'll did a wonderful putting her away. God Bless and continue to be safe!!!

AUNTIE Lela was Powerful Literature a strong Black woman who created a home for her family. She was bold ,beautiful and could cook anyone under the table. She had discernment and was able to give advice that one could grab hold to and walk out the apartment feeling ready to take on the situation at hand. Her Strong character could be heard and felt whenever she enter the room.
My aunt was a giver, A women I will deeply miss. I appreciated all the love and attention she poured into me growing up..... May The lord of Host strengthen each and every family member in jesus name Amen.
