    OMG, My Grandma Mildred…Oh how I will miss this lil Feisty Lady :-(. I will forever hold you in my heart! Never did I think Nov 2020 would be the last time I saw you, but we had a good trip out to Colorado Springs, CO. We even got a chance to see my brother Jamaal working at the airport.

    I thank my Grandma for all she did for me and my children, and my kids truly cherish the times spent at her house fishing and eating, lol.

    Not only did she make sure you left her house full, but she would send food and snacks home with you for later.

    My GRANDMA MILDRED…(crying)

      To my old and dear family friend from Bowling Park. I am going to really miss our phone conversations. Glad I was able to speak to you in January. I pray God give you strength and comfort to get through this difficult time. I can hear her reminiscing from the old days in Bowling Park and the tight ties we had between our families.

    Hello everyone. I know this is a difficult time for all of you and its been a long time since we seen each other. Your mom was blessed to have lived a long time and have such a positive effect on others. I remember the smacks in back of the head and whipping if she could catch me and Pee-wee doing our thing back in the day. But i also remember her kindness too, She cared as to what type of men we would turn out to be. My hope in the Resurrection gives me the confidence that persons like herself, you and I will see again. Rev.21:3,4
