I remember calling you in the mornings, when I would be driving to wherever I had to go that day. When you would answer I would say momma! You replied and said son. I would ask you if you drank your perkalator. That's what we called coffee. It's a struggle for me at work knowing I can't call you and hear your voice again. That was our routine. I always said your food was the best I ever ate. You have the biggest heart and you were so unselfish. I miss you so much mom. I love you and miss you. I will stay strong for you. Your son Ronnie.

My grandma always had a huge heart. She loved her family so much. My boys loved her very much . I'll always remember how funny , loving and caring she was. She was an amazing cook!! Her food was always bomb and she always listened to all the good jams. I remember when I was younger she had one of her friends play on his guitar "Joker" by steve Miller band. I thought it was the coolest damn thing ever. She was definitely a jokester she always made people laugh. The boys and I will always remember their great grandma as a loving beautiful woman and she will be terribly missed.

Annette was my friend. She always put a smile on my face no matter if she was not feeling her best. Her and her family always had room for me when I suddenly became homeless and had nowhere to go. Annette and her family liked to take me out with them on long drives and we enjoyed singing together to some of our favorite songs, they always made sure I never left her home hungry. They always included me in their meals, and even sent me
home with food so so many times.. I will miss her very very much. I loved her for she was a true friend. I will never forget her or her loving family. I will never stop missing her.
