Aunt Shirley, I'll never forget you, I will miss you dearly. I remember the last time i saw you, I came to detroit with my 2 boys. it was 10yrs ago. I remember you came to pick me up from the hotel and had on some shorts, and i kept looking at you because you were in your 70's and still had pretty legs(lol) . You always took special care of me whenever you saw me, I remember staying with you in Mississippi, I felt just like I was at home and you made sure everyone else treated me good too. I remember you fussing at David about me, lol...Never had to worry about nothing while i was in your presence. I love you and will miss you. May you rest in heaven and kiss everybody for me,

Sending Love and prayers to the Family during this difficult time. May you all find peace in your hearts remembering the love she shared.
Growing up I remember visiting her home often with my friend Christina when she lived on Calvert and Dexter. She welcomed me in her home as if I were one of her own grandchildren.

Rest in Heaven Grandma Mosely. Your presence on this earth will truly be missed.

Love Tanisha Wells💕

My Mother,
I remember when my Mom was 28 years old because I asked her. I thought she was older. We always thought that people were at least 100 years old - I was six. Everything was new to Mom. Raising a family with help from her mother. Buying her first car, a brand new 1964 aqua blue Rambler. We couldn't wait to get our first ride in it. Then as in every first day of May 1965. Her first home - 2046 Kendall Det 48238. I would call her and say thank you for the home memories although we were there for only a short time (9 years). School and church around the corner. She instilled independence for us to do for ourselves and help others. She put us in clubs - The Jr. DTRS for the girls and PAL Big Brothers for the boys. She worked hard and put 3 of us girls in private school. She made sure we had cultural entertainment from Broadway to sports. God was at every meal and night prayer. She would tell me to hold my head up high don't look down because I was to grow up to be a tall woman. She said to face everyone head on and to stand up for myself and what was right. She was a grand - lady - wise -smart. She was a powerhouse - always protected her children. Spoke up for her family. Our needs were always met. We wanted for nothing. We had holiday attire and many picnics and beach outings. She often let us bring our friends. She played Boogie Man when we were younger to neighborhood kids.

My Mom is always with me. I'll write many more letters of love to her as my years go by.

I Love You Mom

Again the lord has taken our love one and our thoughts are (for ,'God sake !'
We just answered our own question

We must thank God for our mother and love ones ,God has chosen them to grace our life so, we must Honor their presence and keep them in our hearts and memories.
So join me family remember her heart
and don't forget to pray. After all

' She would want it that way'
