  1. I’m so sorry my beautiful and sweet friend.
    I had no clue just looking swiftly so I don’t loose time management on assignments. But God made me aware that your mom passed away! My heart sunk! Lord my friend ‘s pain of such a sad lost man i hurt. Just knowing your gorgeous mom has left this earth. No more pain, no more suffering, Whew the part about you had retired to take care of her tears. Oh but the treasured memories both sad and happy. She was just where she wanted to be on her last days. Oh it hurts me I can’t even be near to give you a huge liong hug! Just know job well done by friend. Of course you had her smiling because those traits cone by naturally given to you from your mom. Fly high beautiful lady. My condolences and sympathy for the family. Hug my daughters beautiful play siblings. Love yawl big!!!

  2. Roy and I were more than friends, we were soulmates. We shared thoughts and ideas that we would never share with anyone else. We were a mutual support team, sharing equally our ups and downs. I never had another friend like her and I never will. I loved her and will miss her so much. I know you all feel the same – she was a wonderful, supportive mother and grandmother and was so proud of you all.
    You will all continue in my prayers. Love to all of you.
