Words cannot express the intensity of pain and emptiness that’s in my heart. God called His beautiful Angel home as a wonderful Christmas gift to Himself alone. Trying to fight through my tears missing you feels unbearable at times. I know one day we shall see each other again in that sweet by and by. Rest well my beautiful angel , I Love you and miss you so very much !
Love you Momma J !!!

Grandma, oh how I’m going to miss your beautiful smiling face! The hugs that was so genuine with the rub and pat on the back! I could talk to you about anything! You always made things better and I can’t lie you would be so real at times you would make me mad lol but you didn’t care lol. You loved your hot dogs all the way mayonnaise instead of mustard, 3 piece chicken thighs from KFC slaw and mashed potatoes. I’m glad you gave me the banana pudding recipe I be whipping it up just like yours. Mad I didn’t get that potato salad recipe lol... I could go on and on but grandma you knew this before you died but I wanna thank you again for doing what nobody else would have and that’s stepping up taking our bad butts in and loving us just like your own. We was your kids and you loved loved loved us and we loved loved loved you right back. You taught me real love unconditional love and that’s why I do whatever I do in this life out of love. You taught me greatness and I’m passing it right down to my 2 girls nieces and nephews. You was my everything and more! The best feeling in the world is knowing you knew all of this before you left us! That’s what puts a smile on my face through it all! I love you so much grandma, Rest Beautiful until we meet again on the other side. Love, your favorite granddaughter Ciara
