Tatie Zet was a 2nd Mom to me. A dear dear friend, a confidante, a Nanny and An indoctrinated grandmother to my children. A Faithful Friend to My Mom and Family to us All. Words can never fully express the magnitude of the loss I feel and that our family feels. We are Blessed Beyond Measure to Have had her in our lives. I know She is rejoicing in Heaven. She Loved The Lord so very much and her daily habits exemplified her Awareness and understanding of the importance of a personal relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. She prayed without ceasing for all of us and she and I prayed together on so many occasions. We laughed, we cried, we sang, we cooked and we ate together. We loved each other so much and that will never change. Love is Eternal. I Love You Tatie Zet for Always... She would respond, “ I know Cherie, I Love You too!! I Love All of You”” That was how most of our conversations ended.
Thank you Heavenly Father for sharing your precious Child, Tatie Zet. We are better for having know her and for Loving Her. Always in My Heart and in the Heart of our Family❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽 Cassandre, Clark, Michael, Brystal, Nyah, Jordan Foster, and your partner/buddy, Yvette Michel❤️
