Cuca was my mother's best friend as we were growing up. So I was fortunate enough to spend wonderful summers with the Skelton family. She was so loving towards us but she could be tough! She and my mother loved to fish and would take Lisa, my brother Gary, my sister Lissa and myself to the lakes. So much fun! I will never forget Cuca's generosity and kindness towards myself and my family. Soar with the angels beautiful lady!

I have many fond memories of my mom, such as jamming to her many Elvis Presley albums while keeping up the household. Helping me practice softball when dad was too tired. She even slid to 1st base without trying to 😊. She was my favorite bad mitten opponent. She was my teacher, doctor, confidant, broken heart mender, and so much more. Even though she did her job and set boundaries for me, boundaries I tried to cross, she was as some of you know, a super cool mom and I will miss her for the rest of my life. Rest In Peace Momma.

I had the privilege of meeting "memo" 22 years ago. She was a beautiful amazing woman. She did a great job raising Amy like she was her own daughter and I will always remember her with love. She may have been small but her heart was much bigger. Fly high memo we will all see you again someday.

I got the privilege to have been raised by my grandmother who is such a great woman. I have many many memories with my grandmother and things we have done and seen together throughout life. We traveled to Memphis Tennessee to see her Elvis Presley home Graceland. We also traveled and saw 3 Gone with the wind museums in Georgia and every year on Thanksgiving the call to remind that Gone with the wind is on TV. I will miss her dearly and I love her so much.
