Rest in Paradise auntie. I remember as a young girl how I would follow you and aunt Annie Mae around grandma Virginia house and my mama would call me home. Didn't she know that I was in safe company. The love that you graced your family and the community with will be deeply missed. When I think of you, I will look towards heaven and smile, as I can imagine you say "my niece always call me when I need someone to talk to". Fly high auntie, your wings have been given and only God knows why. You will forever be in my hear. Love always, your niece Cynthia...
