These are the feelings I felt evertime I spent time wit my Bar-BeQue, as I fondly called her! She has the gift of servanthood from GOD as a blessing to all of us who shared her presence, so sweet and giving and those dimples from her smile was ooh sooo comforting! REST NOW MY SISTAH...

I remember when I was about 7 yrs old and Aunt Barbara worked at the barbecue place across the street from were the park is now on the north side we used to go there after school and she would give us cookies and soda always smiling but let us know we needed to get home before dark. I will miss her greatly her love was unconditional. I m so glad that GOD let us create good memories.

Love you Auntie I know you have some Big wings . And walking those streets paved with Gold.
