She used to call me her little darl...and my brother loved her so much too. He always used to,say to me ....im aunties favorite!!! I'd say yeah ur right Ricky. Lol But we both loved her alot because how could you not. That's the kind of person she was...she would give you her shirt of her back and what a mother she was....she took such great care of her son Richard and Janice and all who needed her. Talk about unconditional love...thers nothing she wouldn't do for her children. She was there for everyone ...that is the kind of person she was. Her home was your home.
