I thank God for crossing paths with you. You were such a genuine and caring person. I know you’re with God. Every winter I think about the time I didn’t have a coat. It was freezing. You learned I didn’t have a coat and you bought me one. When I came to visit and we talked about what I had been up to you told me God was blessing me and you were proud of me. It meant a lot to hear that someone was proud of me. I’m starting to cry as I think of how I won’t see you when I go over to visit. You were such a blessing to me. Thank you for being a grandmother to me and my sisters. To my brother Quinton I love you and I’m always here for you. Mama Jackie I know you’re strong but God is even stronger and I know that he is going to carry you and Twin through this. I love you all. 🤞🏾❤️
