Rest in peace to my Granny, partner in crime, and best friend. You have gained a new title... my guardian angel. From tea parties and feeding ducks to trips to the casino and drinking games, you were the best Grandmother a girl could ask for. There are so many things about you that I will never be able to forget. Your wittiness and sense of humor was one of a kind. I still can’t believe that you are gone. My heart is broken, but I know you are at peace. You did so much for me and I never could repay you for everything. I hope you know how much you mean to me. It was an honor and a privilege to be there with you the last couple of days, and to hold your hand as you departed. I hope you met up with pawpaw, your mom, your dad, and all of your siblings. I also hope that you finally were able to relax (without any pain) and enjoy a natural light and all of the strawberry ice cream you could ever want.

I love you Granny! You will be missed.

Love your favorite,
Lani

Granny, from the first time I met you at 14 years of age, I knew you were so special. As I grew up in your family, I knew you loved me. As a mother-in- law, you made me feel like I belonged. Even as an ex-mother-in-law, you still loved me. I thank God for continuing our love for each other all these years. I love you Gran. Your “Sheril Ann”

Mama,
I will miss you so much. Thank you so much for everything you did for Lani and I. I hope you know how much I cared and loved you even though I aggravated you. I hope you are with maw-maw, paw-paw, daddy, Aunt Mable, and the rest of your brothers and sisters. Until we meet again...
Love you mama!
-Michelle

Granny no one can ever replace you. You are my best friend, heart, & world. You were one of a kind but I know no one would have wanted you different. My heart is broken but I know you are at peace. I know you are with God, parents, siblings & PawPaw. I know you are watching over us. You will be my granny, Mille, & so much more for the rest of my life. I love you so much. I wish I could hear you say I love you more one more time & I say not possible & you say your heart is bigger. I love you so much granny.

Your 2nd favorite granddaughter,
Dayna Boudreaux
