She is a great lady, and will always be my Mama Marie. My thoughts and prayers are with her family a wonderful group of people she raised.

My condolences to Nona, Maurice, Gary, and the rest of the family. It was a pleasure and honor helping you take care of your mother the last several months. I will cherish her and the experience for the rest of my life.. Blessings

Dear Mawmaw, When I think of you I think of Love, warmth, good cooking, frogs (that’s what you blamed your gas on), and laughter! As I was a child we would cook, braid hair, and crack jokes, and tell stories. Then as I grew older I left for the other side of the world, but you still held a very special place in my heart and that place will forever be filled with memories of you, my grandmother. As much as I wish I could be there to say goodbye personally unfortunately the distance and circumstances of the world right now are keeping us apart. Goodbye Mawmaw, I love you so much. Claire
