My memory has never been the best but I remember the way my Big Auntie made me feel always welcomed, warm, and loved. She was there for us during some of our most trying times in a hurricane season and she was there for me when I was young and didn't know how to cope with being in unfamiliar territory. Ill always remember her as a strong personality, self assured, and graceful. She, from my memory, was serious but very comical and funny, much like her sister. I love you Big Auntie! Till we meet again, give my Grandmommie a hug for me!

I will always have fond memories of my dear friend Mary, a English teacher at Southwest HS. A great person. I was assistant principal. I will always remember our favorite saying as we greeted each other every morning, “Church are you praying?” Farewell my friend; plans are to see you in the morning.

Thanking God for having Aunt Mary in my life for all these years. After my Mom passed she was there for all the kids, helping to raise us and make sure we knew the Lord. I thank her for every moment we had together. She was a very loving and caring person, always giving to others. She loved her family. God's Blessing on the Family.
