  1. I’m going to miss you momma! Your laughing at something silly, like the antics of Maxine! Your little jig when you were happy with the news! Listening to you talk about how proud you were about someone in the family! Watching you get excited while watching football, especially your ASU Sun Devils! And learning from you and your experiences in life! You accomplished so much in your life and learning from you helped me navigate through mine! I’m sad and happy about losing you, sad for the loss of a mother and a friend, but happy that heaven gained an Angel! Miss you and Love you, Angie

  2. My condolences to your family. Such a beautiful woman. Blessed to have a loving family.❤️

  3. I didn’t know you, but knew of you through your daughter, Terry. I worked with Terry for many years and she is quite the person. I love her personality and generosity and she is just an overall wonderful person. I’m sure much of it came from you and her dad! May they forever keep you in their hearts. Soar high sweet angel!

  4. I miss our talks and learning so much about you Chris. I heard so many stories about your family growing up and all of the things that you enjoyed. I didn’t mind one bit hearing the same stories over and over again. If you wanted to tell me again, I was happy to listen. You were so easy to talk to because you were so down to earth, you listened and you said it how it was. You made things feel better. Your family was your happiness and of course the love of your life, Ed. The only thing that gives me comfort in knowing you are gone is that you are with Ed again. Rest in Paradise together. I miss you so very much. You were so special. Forever in our heart.

  5. May you rest in Heavenly Peace my sweet sister. It’s very hard to let you go and yet I know time will heal. I’m at peace knowing that you no longer feel pain and are resting in God’s loving arms. My prayers and condolences to all your family and friends. Lynette

  6. Momushka the selfish part of me wants you to still be here. My best friend from birth, I miss hearing your voice, watching you dance when I would leave (that sounds funny!) the stories of your life growing up and working as a nurse. How you loved us all and would never pick a “favorite” but I always knew it was me!! 😜 most of all I’ll miss hearing you call my name “Sissy”. No one else ever called me that. It always made me feel special. My heart is broken into a million pieces and I know I will never be the same. I will miss you everyday I walk this earth.

    The other part of me knows you are with dad and no longer suffering. You always said you didn’t know why God didn’t take you because you missed him so much. You weren’t sure of your purpose here. But God knew we needed you a bit longer. Although it wasn’t long enough for me I know you are with Annie and dad your momma and Kairi and Christopher laughing and having a great time free from the life we have here. Thank you God for giving me this Angel for 62 years.
