I remember when I would go to Aunt Marzelle and Uncle Henry’s House... I would stay the night with Christian and we would laugh and talk all night... Even seeing them at the store I would give her and uncle Henry a hug, she always said she loved me and I always will remember that with her!!! Aunt Marzelle, I love you so much!!! Your no longer in pain... I will miss her so much!!!! I love you always and forever!!!! And I’ll see you again one day!!!

The first time I met Mom I feel in love with her and her beautiful smile.I am blessed to be her daughter in law. We have countless hours of sharing and good conversation of her good old days.She also taught me how to canned food peel and cut "taters" without using chopping board.I had experienced her love,caring and selfless giving to all her loved ones.The last days of her life was one of the most precious moments to me.I have watched her suffered and battled the disease and the pain of death but have conquered it all with all with her strength and love.The last word and gesture she gave me was the ultimate victory of giving herself and surrendering to the will of God,while at the hospice she woke up held my hands tight and said to me;" Sho! Your hands are cooled." and gave me the beautiful smile! There and then I knew in my heart that Mom is home,home to herself and home to his creator. THANK YOU MOM for sharing your beauty and peacefulness towards Life may the compassionate heart and attitude remain and be shared by us to others,for now we ask you to watch us and guide us in our journey to life.

Some of my fondest memories of my childhood are with Granny. I remember when Mom would drop me off and I would stay with her while she worked at the church. I enjoyed helping her, especially cleaning the Chapel because I loved the stained glass windows. She also allowed me to play, so I would play teacher in the classrooms while she worked. She loved flowers, lilies were her favorite & they are my favorite as well. She also liked to doodle and to this day I still sit at times and doodle the house, with mountains in the distance and a rock sidewalk leading up to the house, just like she taught me. She had a huge heart & would help anyone she could. She was one of the best people I have ever known and she was always there when I needed her. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother and she will be missed dearly. She will remain in my heart & memories forever, because she is a special part of me.

My favorite memories growing up and even as an adult include My sweet granny. I loved visiting her and waking up to the smell of gravy and biscuits. I never will forget after she prepared the meals; she took her place in the seat (her seat) closest to the kitchen as she watched her loved ones eat. She always told me I was her favorite, and as we grew all grew older we all knew she told us all the very same thing. She always wanted us to feel like we were number one. In her eyes we all were. But, I’m our eyes she truly was our number one.
