Queen there are so many things I can say about you! I remember when I was hospitalized and you were my monitor tech! You would call to the room to make sure I was ok! If a lead was loose you checked on me. If I worked on the floor with you, you made sure I knew exactly what was expected of me. Just to run into you in the halls there would be a greeting and a smile with a fond hello how are you doing? You had the right name (Queen) because in my eyes you were Royalty! Fly high in the clouds and rest well my friend! You will truly be missed!
🙏🏽♥️🌹♥️🌹♥️🙏🏽

I can’t say enough about my friend because I have so many memories. One of my fondest memories is how supportive she was for me when my father passed away. His funeral was almost 2 hours away from Memphis so I knew no one was going but immediate family. She asked me at work about the arrangements and I didn’t think anything of it. The day of his funeral, Queen had Ronny to drive her to my house early (8:30a.m) to make sure they were there in time to follow me there. That’s the person she was, always giving! She was an amazing woman, coworker and my friend.
Rest well my friend until we meet again!💐🌺🌻🌷

Aunty Deed, you took care of me and was my 2nd mother. I will always remember you waiting for me at the top of the hill every day after school. You made sure I had everything I needed. I loved that I got to spend time with you and Uncle Joe and Judy, Joy and Ronny. You are kind, loving and giving. Always willing to share with anyone. You will be missed. May you Rest In Peace
