"To the family of Mrs Thorne the pain you are feeling now is great.  I remembered the day of my mother's  funeral I felt such numbness.  As the days have gone by since 2015 of my mother's passing these are the greatest things that are helping me. Hopefully these will help each of you.  I remember many things that made her smile, her favorite shows and stories of her childhood.  The resurrection in John 11:21-25 that Jesus said to Lazarus' sister Martha.  I pray that each of you will have peace."

"It's sad I can hear your voice right now saying "missy... Nikki... Domi stop crying you don't need to cry" but I can't help it I love you so much and this pain is unbearable you were all I had left in New York and regardless of how much you were hurting you were more then ready to get anyone together for me. I hated the fact that you smoked but it's hard to realize there's no more reservation Saturday's, they'll be no more you sucking your teeth and telling me maybe I need a cigarette because I'm wound too tight, they'll be no more you getting my wife together ... she only listened to you. All you wanted was for me to be healthy; from your hospital bed you called me to make sure I was making my appointments and taking my medicine. You loved me and I loved you. I never wrapped my head around the fact that you were dying, I brushed it off and I never said it, you never went in depth but you told me that me and Lex needed to have a party with the "wannabees" the twins because they knew how to party and we didn't. You wanted me to live life, you wanted me to love ... you wanted me to forgive and forget. No matter what pain I was feeling you wanted me to be happy and smile. You just cared so much. When I told you I wanted to get a machine and make shirts on the side you told me to make you one that said "It's Mo ... Yo" ❤️Dominique-granddaughter"

"Right after you past away you came to me in my dreams. You was still here with us. No oxygen, no pain, no anxiety. You were laying in the bed so calm and comfortable wondering why we were all looking at you like something was wrong. You told me you was ok and you smiled. Then you went to sleep. I know that was you telling me you already transitioned and your soul is already with us. I love you always! ❤️Gina Hart-Niece"

Out of your great union with Uncle Charlie, you brought two great people into the world - Kareem and Nikki. Through them and your family tree, you live on. Rest in Heavenly Peace, Aunt Ramona. Praying God's comfort to the family and all whose lives you've touched. ❤ Stephine Howard-Niece"

"Dear Sister. I promise you I would start thinking of the funny things we did and have shared. I'm trying but today is hard. You reminded me how blessed I have been to have had such a great 3 years with you.  The kids are so thankful for 2 holiday visits here and our visits there.  You made me do all those holiday parties because you said you were living vicariously thru me and so I did.  You made me paint your nails and bath you and so I did. Together we created our post on face book to show the world I made it in time.  Best sister sleepover ever except you kept me up all night snoring & taking up most of the bed  You asked me to play old music we could sing to and so I did.  So perfect you fell asleep.  I Kissed your face and hand and fell apart but you didn't have to see that.  You have left specific instruction for my life without you.  I promise to keep my end of the bargain but remember to visit in my dreams like we spoke about, you promised.  I love you to the moon and back."

"We are so sorry to hear of Ramona's passing. However we feel so blessed that we were able to visit her and have lunch with her a week ago. She was so upbeat and full of laughter and reminiscing about old times. She was prepared for whatever was ahead for her. She fought a good fight and now she can rest in sweet peace. Sending love, peace and blessings Shinnequa, Kareem and the entire family!"
