I am so happy to have my last memory of you as a fiesty, funny and strong woman. And yes you scolded me for not saying anything in advance, I was glad I was able to surprise you.Though, covid robbed Jon and I an opportunity to bring your great-grandsons Jonnie & Frankie in person but just a meeting of two buns in the oven cooking, I feel blessed that my children will continue your strong leagacy in this life. I will miss you.

Its 5am and couldn’t sleep. It’s normal now for me. I am constantly flooded with memories and sadness. But then I remember something funny that Auntie or momma said. And i start to smile Auntie was a funny, smart ,strong ,tough woman. And could curse like no other. I will miss her dearly. I learned a lot about her and my mom. Her memories of mommy singing her to sleep. When they were young. How she fight for mom when they were young and being picked on. it was good to hear those stories. And those memories were still there. I know for sure they are together. And with all our loved ones who have gone on to be with our heavenly father. I will never forget the loss i feel. But i know i will see them again. I love you Auntie . Rest in peace.

Years seems long but they are short, my aunt knew me since I was child and she was essential part of my life. My Aunt and my grandmother taught me a lot that education was important and don't take "shit from anyone" in her own words. My Aunt and My grandmother Ethel Brown were beautiful, strong, loving and amazing, and strong disciplinarians turning there young girls in the family into strong women. My last memory when I spoke with her on the phone when she was in the hospital we laughed and talked about her health, her sister, all her children and grandchildren and great grand children and how proud and happy she was, and when I cursed on the phone laughing with her, she said "Esha don't say that because the nurses are listening to her phone calls" I laughed. The last time I seen my Aunt was when me and husband visited her in Vegas she cooked for us , we talked and my uncle Suge laughed while we told him about our first night in Vegas, She told us to go sleep to get rid of all the liquor we consumed, we slept for 2 hours and woke up talking and laughing again before we left, she kissed me and my husband goodbye and said "don't get your asses in no trouble." The last thing she asked me was to mail pictures of her great nephews and thought I had time, I was going to visit her and do a trip with my twins like I did with my husband the first time but as a family. I'm sad I never got a chance I thought I would have more time that's why I say years seem long but they are short. At this time in my heart I hope my Aunt is with her heavenly father in peace, joy and righteousness. I will love her always and I smile and laugh every time I think of her as especially her favorite curse word that she said like no one else not even Samuel Jackson could say it like her. I love you Auntie from me and my family The Beckles.

I want to Express my deepest sympathy to the family and friends of Priscilla. I am very sorry for your loss. According to Revelation 21:3,4. "God himself promise in the future, he will be with them. And wipe out every tears from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." May this Scripture helps your feelings be comfortable in this stage of your life.
