Sorry for your lost. I remember when we went and stayed with her that summer she treated me as if I was her own. We had so much fun. She was so sweet and will be missed.

Grandma even though I know you are at peace and with papa. I am really heartbroken that your no longer with us. You helped me in so many ways. You, Eddie and the girls helped me cope with papa's passing and then uncle Karl's passing. Even though I still haven't been able to get over it 100% you were always there to comfort me. Now I've lost you. Who will be there for me like you were? No one really understood how much papa, uncle karl and you ment to me. And lord knows we had are differences and problems but we were able to over come them together. I will miss our conversation and time spent together. I will miss the good times and the bad times we shared. I will never forget how you accepted and loved me with open arms. You were/are the best grandma and great grandma ever. Please take care of your self, papa, uncle karl and bobo up in heaven until the day we can all be a family again. Grandma I love and miss you so much and the pain is so unbearable right now. But I know if you were hear you would tell me it will get better in time and that you would want me to be happy and at peace knowing you are happy and have been reunited with papa and both of my uncles. So I'm trying my hardest to make you as proud of me as I am of you. You will always be in my heart and on my mind. Rest in peace my beloved grandma and guardian angel.

Always Loving & missing you
Your granddaughter

I'm so sorry to hear about Faye. We were in second grade when her sister and my uncle got married and we became good friends. Both of us moved around alot, but continued to write each other through the years. After high school graduation, we got a job working at the same company. We dated and married within a month of each other. We had some good times together. Faye was very talented when it came to sewing beautiful outfits. She will be sadly missed and I am so sorry for your loss Melissa.

Your smiling face will be missed when we walk into the hardware store. You were always so willing to help. We will miss your visits to our little church at Mercy Baptist too. But when God is ready for us to go home, we know we will be where He is and the smile I remember from you Faye, will be nothing compared to the smile you have now in our Heavenly Home. We pray we will see you again. May God give your family and friends enough comfort through the sad days until they too, see you again. Most people say RIP, we say kick up your heels and enjoy what we all want at the end of our days on this earth; living with God himself.
