There is not a woman on this earth more loving, kind, and willing to give her shirt off her back. She took in children with no homes and also ran a ACLF for the elderly to also have a home with love, and home cooked meals daily. She also taught me and I can hear it in her voice today Jimmiejo god has blessed you with his children referring to both my kids and she said it’s up to you on how you care for them. Grandma you have taught us all what love means and never be afraid to pray he is always listening. Now your free of all the pain in hurt and back with grandpa and Aunt Millie go fly high I know I have a gain a guardian angel 👼🏻 I love you ❤️

She was the best grandma ever. She was kind and giving and the heart of our family. She was strong yet tender. She earned her wings decades ago and she deserves the rest and peace that she is finally getting. I will forever miss her and love her.

Love Always,
