"Mother, I am in so much pain and misery without you. Your love, support and guidance is missed greatly. It is extremely  hard to let go of you. I remember when I was a little girl you were holding my hand to walk me across the busy street and I looked at you and said "mommy please don't never let go of my hand" and you said I will never let go of your hand baby because moma loves you too much. That was the best feeling in the world. Now I'm still saying mommy don't let go of my hand...But I know that's not possible because now that I am older and know God I realize that He needed you more than I did. I love you so much mother I'm praying for strength while continuing to take care of my three sons. Hope I can be that same great mother that you were to your six childern. Mother you will always have a place in my heart and I will love you forever and, for always. Until we meet again please continue to watch over us ALL  my beautiful angle. (Major Tears). #GodHealsAllWounds. BestMotherInTheEntireWorld."

"Aunts hold a special place in the hearts of their nieces. Aunts are often a source of good, unbiased advice and special friendships.

Dear Tee,
  I just keep wishing you were still here, but that would be selfish. Through my memories of you, you'll never depart from me. You always left the door open for me, because you knew that I was going need you. I still need you, please show me how to comfort your brothers and your sister,and I so want you to show me how to comfort my cousins. I really take comfort in knowing you didn't have much pain, you trusted God one hundred percent, and that you are at piece. I love and miss you lady!  Pumpkin."

"Hey Grandma, never have I imagined that writing a note would be the only way I could talk to you. I have accepted the fact that I will never see your face, get "told off", or listen to your great words of advice; ever again. It wasn't easy by far. Only God knows Grandma. Mama has really been going through it; barely getting you off of her mind. We cry together all the time. I know you told us never to cry because you're now with your father; but, its just that we miss you like we never had you. There's nothing more important than words from the wise, and I have lots of knowledge and values that you've giving me and nothing will ever be able to take that away. You told me get on my stuff and quit worrying about the outside world and the small stuff, so that's what I'm doing. You taught me to forgive and help others. Now that I'm grown I am sooo greatful to have had you as a leader, role model, and Most of all my Grandmother. Many people have no one to show them right from wrong. You made SURE we ALL knew our Father God, Jesus Christ as our savior. You kept hope alive and faith strong and for that I thank you and will always love & miss you Grams"

"To My Grammy
You are one of a kind the strongest woman that I have had a chance to come across in my life time. When I wanted to see things my way you would tell me the truth and help me see through a brighter day. Grandma when you see something not right you have to say something about it. You just don’t sugar coat anything you say how you feel. There is a certain thing called the look and that I would get when I did wrong. I had so much fear in you I would jump back in line if I didn’t it was a whipping on my behind. I want to make you happy I don’t want your time to be a waste of time. You are the reason my college professors say I am one of a kind. I want to tell you keep your peace of mind, because my mind is never on autopilot. So know that on this grandchild you didn’t waste your time. Thank you for your hard work on my mother; you taught her how to be a good mother. Without you I would be like the rest of the world, not extraordinary. I will always love you."

"Mother" you will forever be my favorite girl in this whole wide world. I will remember everything you taught me. Most of all I want to thank you for instilling great morals and values in me. I will never stray away from my upbringing no matter how people may judge me. In a few more months we will have OUR Doctoral Degree and it is because of your determination & motivation that keeps me going. You were always there for me & I will continue to make you proud of me. I will forever cherish your loving memory. Boy I wish you were still here with me there is so much I need to talk to you about. I will ALWAYS love you...(In my Whitney Houston voice).<3 <3 <3"
