    I was so sorry to hear about Aunt Sis' passing. I had hoped Eric and I could make it down there to see her again but we weren't able to.. Aunt Sis was such a dear person to us. She was like a mother to me in a place where I had no one. Rest in peace dear lady..

    My dear life long friend I will miss you terribly. You have always been there for me uplifting me and keeping me in your prayers through all my difficult times I will always remember your sweet sweet smile. I also will never forget the time you took to teach me to sew and crochet. Thank you my dear friend. Until we meet again
    I love you! Brenda Williams
