    I’m so sorry for the loss of a mother to my nieces and nephews, and their children.
    Only eternity will fully reveal how wise our choice was to follow Jesus in this life..May you all know the love only HE can give you, especially at this time of grief!

    We love you mom! 11/21, will be forever a day we will get to celebrate and bless you! It will be forever your day! I will continue my faith in Jesus with you by my side. I know coming to terms with you gone was the hardest thing I have had to do but I know you will forever hold real estate in my mind and I will continue to share memories with my kids of their NONNA! Fly high beautiful!

    Momma! As I sit here and ponder on memories of life with you, I smile. You were my best friend and a person I called on when I felt uneasy about life and life decisions. I will forever miss you. Kendrick and Khloè will always know of you! I love you to infinity and beyond a million time. 😘
