  • What a wonderful person. A beautiful personality. She always spoke highly of her family, she loved you all. She always spoke what was on her mind. I will never forget her funny saying ” what doesn’t sag — leaks–“, she was funny, and what a true statement. Please hang on to all the beauty she left you. I was so heartbroken to hear of her death. I did her hair the morning she died. I had no idea it would be her last, as well as all of us didn’t. She had lots of plans…, But before she left, I told her I would see her in a month..she said GOD WILLING….
    So MAY SHE REST IN GODS PEACE …… It was my honor to know her…may God bless all of you.
