Thank you Mema for all the memories. It was always good to visit you. We love you.
You know that I know what it's like to lose a parent. It's one of the hardest days of your life. You took good care of your momma with the courage that it takes. You and your family are in my prayers. Take comfort in knowing that she's resting easy now.
