My Boo,my best friend of 32yrs. How I miss our 0700, 1300, 1530, 1730, 2030 (and other times in between) calls. We knew what each other was doing everyday, all day. Boo had the biggest heart, always willing to help everyone before herself. She also had her favorite sayings. Hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on(while she listened to "Lets make a deal" on t.v.). Then I"d say ok, ok, ok, ok. Or she would say something and then say "ha, ha or shut it up". We cracked each other up all day. When it got close to Christmas she would say, " I won't my sandtarts." And every night she would say, "talk to you tomorrow, Lords will." You will truly be missed. Fly high my sista.

One of my first friends. More like cousins. All us runnin round Granny's. We all hid in the closet during storms, we played & fought, caught caterpillars & lightnin bugs, took naps, church, from eating shredded wheat for breakfast to eating plums off the tree in front. I love you Boo. Spread your wings. You'll forever be missed.

This was a sad day but God knew what was best. You were a beautiful niece and I will miss " what you doing? I didn't want nothing " then we talked for a hour or more , laughing at things life threw at you and her favorite TV shows. Boo , know that you were loved by all.

I am so sad to learn of the passing of Ninita. I taught her in kindergarten at Sunnymede. She was a spunky little girl with a big, smile that could melt your heart. One day, she asked why I didn't have a "nickname" or didn't white people do that? I wouldn't call her "Boo" because I wanted the other children to know her real name. I know she will be missed. Praying for your previous family. Our God is faithful to meet our every need. Hugs
