  1. Jackie, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Your Mom is now looking out for you again. My prayer is for Peace, Healing and many Blessings for you.

  2. We have wonderful memories of Ms. Ruby (Nannie). Our Anna (Alonzo) said to tell you that she wished she could have come for the service. She is 25 years old now and lives in the Austin area. She loved your Mom very much and had wonderful memories of the time spent with her. May God grant all of you much comfort in Ruby’s home going. She is in a much better place with the Lord.

  3. Jackie I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mom (nannie). She was such a wonderful lady. I thought of her often after the girls were in school. She was a blessing to be around and was always happy. There was never a time I didn’t see her smiling. I know she is in a much better place now with our Lord and Savior. May the Lord bring peace and comfort to you during this time of sorrow.
