My mom was the best person anyone could ever meet! She was always smiling & just so good at loving people from her heart! She never tired of taking care of people. Giving them food, baking, a kind word! She was always talking, but, somehow, I never got tired of listening to her! I just love my mom! I miss her a tremendous amount, but I’m so glad she’s at peace! Never to be sick, tired or hurting ever again, one day I’ll see her again, never to depart! I love & miss you, Mom! ❤️😢

I will miss Grandma Lila. She always was a wonderful to me. She never made me to feel less than any another of her grandkids even though I was a step-grandkid. She told me more than once that she didn’t have step family she just had family. I Love you Grandma and look forward to seeing you again someday.

Aunt Lila was my second Momma growing up!
She would always fix us fish sticks and macaroni & cheese, every Friday for dinner!

I was blessed to have her at my wedding too, and to keep her in my life, thereafter!!!

I will never forget her smile, her sense of humor, and her strong faith!

She was truly a beautiful lady, inside and out, and I was sooo blessed to have called her Aunt, and Mom!! ❤️❤️

Rest In Peace Aunt Lila....🙏🏼

My beautiful mom went home to be with the Lord May 6, 2020. She was so lovely and energetic. She loved her family so much and in turn they all loved her.
She was always, always doing for others, especially growing up she was our rock. She did what it took to make our lives a little easier.
Her life, sometimes, was an uphill battle but she endured through it all, which made her stronger for it.
I Love you Mom and you are sorely going to be missed.
Heaven has gained a magnificent angel!!
Love you Pat Mose
