Sweet and loving is the heart of my Granny! I thank God for our time!
Sooooo many memories!
Like the time we hit the Pastor’s car while arriving to church. Good thing we were early because all church business was shut down. Lol Or the times I would call to tell you I was running away from home and you would stop what you were doing and come pick me up.
Sooooooo many sweet memories!
Me as an adult picking you up for church and our lunch dates afterward where we just talk about nothing but everything.
Or you coming to my house to help me with “life”after I had children. Meals cooked twice a week with love. Granny you would say I could get rich from the changes I find in ya’ll laundry.

All the times you were there and all the many things you have done, I will forever Cherish !
Rest Well Granny until we are together again Rest Well!
I love you!

We Love You Granny

Weary
God saw you getting weary.
He did what He thought best.
He put his arms around you
and said, Come and rest.
He opened up His golden gates
on that heartbreaking day
and with His arms around you,
You gently slipped away.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
You did not go alone.
A part of us went with you
the day God called you home.

Love,
David, Robin, Trey, Jasmine, Trent, Jada, and DJ
