You were one of a kind and had 2 daughters who love you more than anything. I laugh as I think of you always was a step ahead of me and melissa in our shenanigans. We thought walking to pop a tops for your sub drop would save us but nope u always let us know you knew we was caught up to something silly. ♡Tina

I met momma Shelia and Angelia in 2009. We were neighbors. They treated me and my daughter Kailey like family! We both fell in love with them! I will cherish every moment that we shared! Our condolences to the family. I know that she is in heaven with her husband, dancing. Sending prayers and hugs to y’all.
Love, Robert Sherry Kailey
