Momma, I am so heartbroken that you’re gone, I’m gonna miss hearing you tell me Save, save this could be you. Meaning I can retire one day and go on all those trips with u, brad, Mary etc. After constantly calling and texting and no response it never cross my mind that you would be gone. I’m gonna check on Dad and Chuck will keep in touch as well. It hurts so bad and all I do is cry and play my voice mail u last left me with. Hey baby just wanna hear your voice, momma miss u. OMG this hurts. I’m gonna keep praying for God to give me strength to endure the pain I feel. My birthday is Friday and just to know I’m not gonna get a call from you makes it harder. I Love u so much and you’re forever be in my heart. Your daughter Dianne and God sons Chuck and Nick.

Mrs. Althea was my supervisor at Bank one. I remember her giving the team the coolest Christmas gifts. She also took the team out for dinner once a month her treat. Mrs. Althea spoiled us. Then after years passed by she had one of the ex coworkers to contact us and again invited us for dinner her treat. I would always brag on her. She was so kind and always had her team's back. She will be missed. So honored to know her.

It saddens my heart to hear of Mrs. Althea passing. I worked under her at Bank One. She was truly a beautiful, sweet person, very generous and had a fun personality. She will be deeply missed. My prayers go out to her husband and family.

This is so hard to believe. I always called you world Traveler and would tell you I want to grow up and be like you.
I could always pick your brain when I wanted to learn more about our grandparents and their siblings and parents.
Wow, there's no one left now.
As someone else said, fly high cousin.
Till we meet again.
