You were the best mom I could have ever asked for. I love you so much and I am so grateful to have a piece of your loving heart. Any act of kindness I portray, I always say, "I got it from my mama".

I’ll never forget all of the summers I went to Charleston to visit Rachel at Gigi and Papa Ted’s and our fun trip to Disney World. She became my Gigi as well and I’m so grateful of the memories I have with her. ❤️❤️❤️

I loved Gean - she was a sweet lady and an awesome cook!! Her crab dip was my favorite. I’m sorry she is no longer with us but I know she’s finally at peace and no longer suffering.
