I wish I could've known you more. You were a beautiful woman who impacted someone very dear to my heart and I will forever be grateful to you! Jamie, your grandmother's beauty shows through you in both your heart and smile. My thoughts and prayers are with you today and always. We love you!

Mama I miss you already. You always made sure that Monica and I never did without. Even as adults, especially me....your problem child. I will cherish all the memories I have of fun times we shared. Thank you for molding Jamie into the woman she has become. No one compares to the grandmother and greatgrandmother you were. We will love and miss you always until we see you again. No more suffering. I love you, Sherryl

You were my grandmother but more like my mother... I don't even know how to go on without you here with me. You taught me how to be the woman I am today and I would be nothing without you. I love you so very very much and I'll never get over losing you although I know you are in no more pain... I can't wait to see you again.... you have always been my sweet beautiful angel and you always will be....I love you Mamaw... I'll see you again soon.
