I was blessed to have this woman in my life. I was 6 when I met her and spent most of time at her home. She was like my second mom. Me, Brenda and Sherry had so much fun there. Mom was so funny and laughing all the time. She would make us ketchup sandwiches and we loved it. I just wanted to say I love you Mom and I will miss you so much. You will always be in my heart.

God received another Angel, I will always remember how she came into my life and took care of all of us kids like we were her own. Never treated any of us with anything but kindness. She will be missed very much. Hard to say goodbye to a second mother in one lifetime. God bless you Jewell. Love her so much.
