Dear Gigi and Oliver: you were the best parents for your two daughters: Mary and Cathy. Oliver I did not meet you personally because you were in God’s kingdom waiting for Gigi when I married you dear Mary, my wife of more than 50 years. But knowing Gigi for all of these years gave me a deep respect and love for both of you. Then our three daughters came: Jennifer, Natalie and Ana and the 5 grand children; Hudson. Ava, the tweens Maya and Zac that Gigi loved and played with when they were babies. Your DNA lives on in them until we will be together in the heavenly banquet for all eternity. Thank you Gigi and Oliver.

I will always remember "Mrs. Morin" as an energetic woman who always smiled and joked when the Howard family came to visit. My mother was a good friend and both were nurses at Mt. Carmel Hospital in Detroit. Mrs. Morin used to pick my mom up for work. An enduring memory is that my mother named her youngest daughter Nathalie after her. My sister Nathalie (also a nurse)will always be a living memory of Mrs. Morin and the close ties women, especially nurses, make when they work and play together.

Mom - Our ever youthful - always fun-loving - perfectly groomed - tiny Mother of ours! You are so dear to us and you live in our hearts forever.
So many memories - how can I ever choose a few? I do know you always loved to sing in your beautiful soprano voice, so I will settle on the memory of the day we sat on Cathy's swing & sang show tunes for hours and you kept saying "they are coming, they are coming" so I asked - "whose coming Mom?" "they are coming to take us to Broadway!"
Sing out with the angels now Mom in the Broadways of Heaven - shine like the super star you always were. I love you! Mary

I have so many memories from the top off wrangler Jeep to the mustang to the McDonalds on Wednesday after school to sandy beach days. Wednesday was our day with her every week for many years. Her love of life is contagious. I cherish every memory and wish I could have made many more. I am so happy that my children were blessed with many years with her. I love you to pieces Gigi. ❤️

We have all called her Gigi for a long time now as the grandmother/great grandmother of the family. However, she will always and forever be my "Tiny"! I have cherished every moment I ever had with you. The one that still makes me laugh is when we were having lunch at Applebee's, you were giving me a hard time about eating ribs with a fork. We were going shopping after and I didn't want to be covered in BBQ sauce. But you said, very matter of fact like, that ribs are meant to be eaten with your fingers!!! I try to always eat ribs with my fingers ever since that day!!! I love you more than words can ever express ❤️❤️

She was a very special lady and I can see her spirit carry on strong in her daughters and granddaughters. I was lucky to have met and spent time with her over the years. In a better place is an overused phrase but in this case she is certainly at peace after a life well lived. Condolences and love to all of her family but especially to Bubba who centered his life around her.
