My Grandmother had a great deal of strength and dignity,never letting others see how heavy the burdens she shouldered really were. She often told me " Try not to burden others with your cares,because their worries might be heavier than your own" . She was the sheild behind which we faced the world. She witnessed every first and major event in my life,when i had my first serious boyfriend,when i got married,when i found out i was going to have my daughter Alyne and my son Jerry
It will be hard to go on without her,but i have to,if I dont all her efforts are wasted,and I love her far too much.To me the sun has always risen and set on my granma and always will,though now days are dimmer and nights are darker,they continue on and so will we,always loving her and always missing her,but still her legacy to the world,I hope I do her proud.

Prayers for my family. She was such a precious lady. Always helping someone, whether it was family or someone in the neighborhood. Loved her so much. She was (Guy Cyril Davis) my Dad's last surviving sibling. She loved her family and her family loved her. Prayers that we all can be comforted knowing we all
were able to have her for a long time in our lives and now our Lord has her in his home. We were blessed.
