I will truly miss you but will keep all the memories we shared and the laughter close to my heart . You were my Grammy still can’t believe your gone . I don’t think about it because I can still hear your voice asking me, “How are you doing today baby?”.. Grammy you may not be here with us today in person that hurts like hell and it is very hard to accept but I will always love you and keep all the positive energy you gave me alive .
🌹Love you forever Grammy 🌹

No one will ever understand our bond. Together we laughed, cried and learned from each other. In all we strived to be the best for each other. We walked this road together. Now, God saw it best for us to part. Until......
Rest my Sister.

Mum: Natty what time are you coming home?
Me: I might have to work late tonight.
Mum: I’m making ‘Slap ya Mamma rice’ and fried fish.
Me: OH! Ok! I’m coming home at 5, I’ll just go in early in the morning.
🥰It was our little thing. She was so willing to teach everything she knew, so willing to listen without judging you.
🌱You would’ve never thought that our relationship would bloom into what it was when you look at how it started. It was because she was a genuine person.
💞Most people love having things because of simple vanity. Mum loved having things so she could share. So she could help whomever was in need. I sincerely loved her for her genuine need to care for people.
Simply through reading this some people still won’t understand what a beautiful person has left us. Nevertheless, I will tell you with all certainty. Everyone that has known her can attest that she has gone above and beyond and done for them what most people close to them today would not do. Who is perfect!? No one! But I’ll tell you one thing. She had a heart of gold and I’m forever grateful to have had her light shine on me.
💔My heart is broken and even writing this brings me to tears, but one thing gives me comfort. She was able to spend time with her first great-grandchild.
❤️I love you mum and I will remember what you always said, never let anyone make you bitter and and don’t look for gratification from people, the reflection of your deeds will manifest in heaven.

Cousin Betty, I will never forget the last time I saw you and the memories we shared. Your smile is one of the things that I will remember most. I will also cherish the times we spent together. Your death leaves a void in my life, but the memories will linger. Sleep on, my dear cousin, and take your rest. I will hold fond memories of you deep in my heart until we meet again.

Sometimes you wonder why your paths cross ...but "Mom" as I affectionately called her, showed me love from a mother to a daughter. She was caring and loving, always had her children, grand children's well being at heart. She was a beautiful soul..and I was blessed to have known her. I extend my heartfelt condolences to her family. Rest on "Mom"

I am so saddened to learn of the passing of my godmother. My fondest memories as a child going to visit with her and from the dogs to the rabbit to the fish but the best was the parrot!
She always asked my mom how I was doing and even though we are so far away from each other it always felt like we were so close.
I pray that her memories will live on. My heartfelt condolences to Gregg and Dale and the entire family.

I’ll Be There
There was no time to say goodbye
But this I ask – please do not cry
Remember me as you think best
The happy times – forget the rest.
Look for me and I’ll be there
And you will find me everywhere
In the gentle touch of breeze
That cools the skin or swirls the leaves.
In the scent and colour of flowers
That gave to me such happy hours
On sunny days under sunny skies of blue
Just think of me, I’ll be with you.
Rest in peace Aunt Betty. Love always
