There's a special kind of love I have for you It's filled with amazing wisdom you taught me. I thank you for being that perfect roll model in my life.

So much has changed since your passing (good and bad). I wish you were here to offer words of encouragement and 100% honesty. You will forever be the most honorable woman i have ever encountered. Continue resting in heaven and being my Grammy from up above!
Happy early birthday....
Love Latifah a.k.a Denai..."
"I only have fond memories of you...that is so awesome! I recently became a morning coffee drinker and each morning when I fill my cup, the aroma instantly takes me back to sipping cool coffee from a small saucer you would give me when I was about 4 or 5 years old. It always made me feel so grown up...:-) There were so many of us but you always made each of us feel so loved. Your heart was pure. Loved always and missed forever."
"Grannie I miss you so much. I long for your words of wisdom. I remember sitting at your feet talking with you about any and everything. Your not here with me physically but I know your right next to me and at times holding me (especially now). I'm thankful that I was BLESSED TO HAVE had you as a MENTOR, PROTECTOR, CONFIDANT, AND MOST OF ALL A PRAYING GRANDMOTHER. Continue to cover your kids and kiss my mommie for me.
LUV U WITH ALL OF MY HEART :)
SMOOCHESSSSSSSSS MY ANGEL"
"Aunt Mattie was a Amazing woman. Full of wisdom and love!!!
Gone but never forgotten"
"Granny you are so very much missed. We miss your wisdom, enthusiasm, and prayers. We know you are living in a place where there is no pain or sorrow. We ask that you continue to send down your blessings for all of us.
Our beautiful gardens now stands alone,
missing the one who nurtured it
But now she is gone,
Her flowers still bloom, and the sun it still shines,
But the rain is like tear drops, for the ones left behind,
The weeds lay waiting to take the gardens beauty away,
But the beautiful memories of its keeper are in our hearts to stay,
she loved every flower even some that were weeds,
So much love she would plant with each little seed,
But just like her flowers she was part of Gods plan,
So when it was her time he reached down his hand,
He look through the Garden searching for the best,
That's when he found Granny, it was her time to rest,
It was hard for those who loved her, to just let her go,
But God had a spot in his garden, that needed a gentle soul,
So when you start missing Granny, remember if you just wait,
When God has a spot in his garden, She'll meet you at the gate....
Jackie, Denai & TJ"
"God is so amazing that HE gave us memories. I realize that through your actions there were lessons. Only a Grammy would let us "bake" our mud pies in her oven, go in her pocket book for dimes every half hour for popsicles trips to the store then eagle eye us to the store from the back porch, let us play and drink out the water hose in the front as long as we didn't wet Uncle George's car...lol Miss your spirit, your prayers and warm heart always. Happy Heavenly Birthday! !
"So, you left before we were ready we know, that’s selfish to thing or say but, it’s the way we feel and we’re sure, others feel this way. You left before we were ready, But we are so thankful that you were here to make us smile and laugh All throughout the years. You left before we were ready you caught us by surprise. We, can’t shake those beautiful memories we hold in our hearts of you."
"I love you and will forever miss your sweet voice. I know that God loves you best and wanted you to rest from your labor. Until we meet again RIP. forever in my heart!
I love you I hope your having a good day with GOD. I hope that god gives you food and water and you have a great day. Love you and talk to you later.
Love Andrew Pamilton"
"Granny oh how I miss you dearly...but I know ur at a better place and I know my daddy and uncle Joe are taking very good care of you. It breaks my heart to know that Andrew didn't get to know until your last days but talks about you like he knew you forever.. Please let daddy know I love him & miss him as much... Always missed and never forgotten... Love you Mattie Markham"
"Granny I love you and miss you very much. You will always been in my heart.
Love you Branden"
"Grammy, although it's been two years, it seems like yesterday when i last held your hand and told you to go on home we would be okay. Its really hard living without you but i thank God for your teachings that i will follow for the rest of my life. You are greatly missed I will always love you and have a special place in my heart set aside for you."
"Grammy, You will forever be missed. I know you are traveling unknown paths but God is your strength. When you left us you really left shoes that would never be filled. I'm trying to hold on to the love and kindness you taught me. But it's not the same. I Love you and you will always be in my heart."
"Mother, what a blessing it was to know you. In good times and bad you were always cheerful, loving, and forgiving. God bless us all to exemplify those qualities."
"I think about you all the time, I love you so much."
"So many words can be written to express my feelings for you. However, I love you seems to express them best! You go down in history as thee best grandma ever!"
"A day doesn't go by that I don't think of you and wish I had just another day to talk with you. I cherish all of the moments we shared together. Your my number 1 ANGEL looking over me. Grannie keep me covered. I Love You with all of my heart"
"There never is enough time to say our last farewells. To say, “Granny I love you” one last time. To hug and wish you well. We want to hold on forever and not release our grip as if our holding on might avoid your final trip. Death is God’s will, and"
