To The Family,
My prayers and condolences go out to you all. I remember your Mom....beautiful woman. The two things I remember the most are how she used CoCo Butter on her face every day and she had beautiful skin and the other memory that's in the fore front of my mind is attending a cookout at her house with my children. We had a good ole time and I got a speeding ticket on my way home. My heart is with you, I understand how much these times hurt. I'm with you in spirit and just a phone call away. My apologies for not being there, it's not a reflection of my care and concern. I love you all and thank you once again for all you've done for my family. Please stay strong and lean on each other. The days will be long but it will get better. Love You, Naja.

Cheryl, Linda, Kim, and family,
I am so very sorry for your loss. Aunt Tini was a truly beautiful woman both inside and outside. We loved her so much. So many wonderful memories with her. Incredibly kindhearted, smart, and very strong. I loved listening to hers and my dad's stories when they were growing up. The love for family, and the fun times they had. My dad loved talking to his baby sister on the phone. I always knew when he was as she would get him laughing all the time. I will always remember her cooking and the delicious meals she always prepared. I know she has reunited with my dad and all of their family in heaven. May she rest in peace. We send our love always and forever. God Bless, Cathy and Aunt Rose.
