Momma K. May you have a wonderful life in eternity. You were like a second mom to me and I love you. You will always be greatly missed and remembered. You were such a companionable nurse and loved all you friends and family unselfishly no matter what the case was. You put up with so much in life and still had a heart of GOLD. God Bless You!!!

To all of you 4 kids, Cameron, Janice, Marshal, & Ray; may God help you get through this difficult time by wrapping his arms around you and helping you to know that your mother always loved you and will never be truly gone. She was so proud of each of you in different ways. Everything she done in her life was to somehow let you know she was doing it for you all. I so truly sorry for you loss.
