  1. Doodles was such a sweet lady and no matter what she faced, it was always with grace and kindness. I know she will be greatly missed.

  2. Oh, Mama. I have no idea where to begin. How do I express how much I love you? How much I miss you? How much I cherish you? What you meant to me? You were the only one on earth who loved me unconditionally and with all of your being. You were my best friend. My rock. My strength. Thank you for all of your prayers….I probably wouldn’t be here if you had not went to our Creator on my behalf. Thank you for being such a good mother and such a beautiful, sweet, kind, thoughtful, and loving person. Thank you for being “My Mama”. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.THATS FOREVER.❣❤
