Mimi,
There are so many memories and I can’t pick just one. I have learned so much from you. You were always a positive person. You always made me laugh. You always gave the best advice especially when we would sit on the swinging bench outside when it was raining and listened to it while we talked. There was never a dull moment with you. Your cooking was phenomenal and I am definitely going to miss it. But most importantly I am going to miss you so much. I love you Mimi. Tell Pawpaw we all said hello. Both of y’all can watch over us know.

Love,
Heather Roser

Jared, Alyssa, Dale, & Connie,

I am very saddened by the passing of Mi Mi. She was an integral part of my upbringing and I always thought of her as a 2nd mother. She was such a wonderful person and I have so many great memories with her. Whenever we saw each other she would always give me a great big hug and tell me how much she loved me. She always made me feel like I was part of the family. She will always hold a special place in my heart.

Ms. Catherine was a good neighbor and friend. I had the honor of knowing her when her residence was in Norco. She was full of sass and was such a character. She will be dearly missed. Sending hugs and prayers to the family.
