You may not remember me, but I use to live across the street from you when you was growing up. It has been a number of years since your family moved. I am very sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very special lady. I know you will miss her deeply. You will be on my thoughts and prayers.

Aunt "Snook" was one of the kindest, gentlest most Godly women that I have ever known. I am lucky to have had her in my life and will cherish the memories for as long as I live. For whatever role God intended for her in my life, I know that I am a better person for having known her. If we could all be just a little like her the world would be a better place. Always here for you sweet Cuz!
