My mama was my everything!!My best friend,confidante,etc..She always stood by me no matter what..We had an unbreakable bond and friendship..All my life I watched her help people in any way she could,whether it was feeding them,clothing them,giving them a warm place to lay their head or whatever they needed,she was always there for everyone..I have so many amazing memories of her and our time spent together..My mama was the strongest person I've ever known as well..She lost all her siblings,as well as her parents..my father,my brothers and several close friends,yet she kept going for all of us..The strength and the willpower and the determination she had was truly amazing..I know my mama loved me better than life itself,just as I know without a doubt,she knew how I loved her as well..I will never have that bond with anyone else,I will never have a loyal friend as I had in her,and I will never ever stop missing her,loving her,and I will never stop remembering our time together or the memories we shared..My mama was my everything and always will remain just that..I love n miss her,more n more everyday...

My granny was my person, the one I could lean on no matter what was going on in my life. She always told me how proud she was of me, let me cry on her shoulder more times than anyone knows about, she was the strongest, loving, caring, set you straight then hug you! She would fix us chocolate gravy and cat-head biscuits for breakfast anytime we asked! The best!!! She could also fix a skillet of fried potatoes that were out of this world!! I never figured out her secret. My boys love her so much and we are all gonna miss our Granny!! She is finally resting...no more worrying about all of us!
