    What a beautiful woman inside and out. Her smile could light up a room. It was such a pleasure and honor to know her.

    Aunt Shirley, a.k.a. "Grandmother", always made me feel like I could do anything. I miss her hugs, warmth, southern drawl, and vegetable soup. I loved sitting at the kitchen table and talking things through with her late at night. It's been many years since we could do that, but I cherish those memories. I'm so sorry that I cannot be there.

    My fiends there are no words to make this any easier , and for that I feel bad. All I want to do is make this easier, but I can't. There is one that can and I will pray that he puts his hand down and hold each of you and let you know he knows your pain. Trust in him and he will help you through this time. Your mother is with the almighty father watching over you now. Lean on that fact and you will be ok. Love you guys and wish I could have be there .
