You were the sweetest women I’ve ever known most welcoming big heart and I’m gonna miss you more then I could ever shown before. You will never be forgotten, and you’ll always be in my heart!! The sound of your voice will always keep a smile on my face. I know one day I’ll see you again, but until then enjoy ur time in the sky! I love you nana!!

    Dear Ida I remember so many things about you as we were growing up. You would take us blackberry picking up and down Lillian Hwy and we would walk to your sister,Kathleen’s,house. It was down that little dirt road that you called Washboard Avenue to Mosquitoville There is so much more that I remember about you. YOU are my sister and my friend. I know we didn’t see each other very often but I will miss you so much. I will keep your family in my prayers and thoughts for I know their hearts are broken and they need Gods strength and comfort. I love YOU and I will see you again. Smile down on us Sweet Angel

    My dear sweet beautiful mama. My heart is breaking so bad. I miss you so much mama. All my memories of you and all the things we have done will get me through this. We had more things to do , but our heavenly father took you home. You always told me there is a reason things happen. I just can’t figure out why I had to lose my beautiful mama. Please watch over us and keep us safe. I wish I could just call and you would answer the phone so we could talk. My beautiful , sweet mama. I love and miss you so, so much. Love always, your baby girl Connie.

We all grieve for you & miss & love you with all our hearts. we will be together again when it is our time to go home. I love & miss you Mama deeply. Your eldest child, Janice
