Tribute from your loving daughter Michelle:
Ma, I loved you as a mother and will miss you. Truly, I can say I did my very best, and I let God do the rest. You worked hard at two jobs in the 60's and 70's to make sure we had the best. Best clothes, shoes, tap dance, ballet dancing, roller-skated with us, Girl Scout Camp, Pullman train trips to Georgia every summer.
Best classy, jazzy sophisticated, smart, kind, loving mother a daughter could have had.
