I know I sent a message already but I truly didn't realize that she passed away on the same date as my daddy and was also buried on the same day. She was so good to me always and the other 2 were not and it broke her heart to see me bullied by them. I was in 4th grade then. My sisters also went there. Praise be to God for her ability to love and to care about me and others. My dad was 46 when he died from cancer. That was 1978. I was in the 9th grade at walker high school. You all were so lucky to have had this wonderful woman in your life this entire time and I loved her so!! 💗🙏🏻
