For the memories I have I wouldn't know where to begin. But I think more than anything I wanna say thank you. Thank you for sharing your mom with me especially when I was at some of the lowest points of my life and guiding me back to the glory that is our lord and father Jesus Christ. I can hear her voice every time we used to leave the house "Jessie don't be getting in no trouble" or "Dont be getting in to nun or imma get you with my cane." We would always laugh about it on our way out the door. I love you Binkybells and all your clumsiness. I think your mom was still trying to sue us about that fight you lost with that piece of paper. In my defense you started it.

Auntie words can’t even explain the void I’m feeling right now, losing Tanie just last year and then you the following year is completely unreal to me, however with the time we’ve shared I have nothing but good things to say, you’ve never ostracized anyone, talked down on them, or criticize. You were my main influence to become closer to God and establish a direct line relationship with him. Auntie I miss hearing you joke around and play with us as children and even more so when we became teenagers/adults. Your kind heart, and nearly infinite wisdom has driven me to be a better man and a better child of Christ I love you and as the song writer said” I hope to see you there, where ALL the saints will be”

Synora Smith was my mother, the best mom in the whole world. She loved me and took care of me and listened to my silliness. She was my best friend, with my momma I never felt judged when I told her something. I could talk for hours with her. I’m going to miss her so much 💙
