Hey Momma well here we are again another mothers day without you. So many years have passed yet I can still hear your voice smell your perfume. I miss you every day of my life. Someday I will be with you again. To many changes so much sadness in this world. Life was much simpler back then. Love was easier people were better. I have to say you would be so proud of your Daughter Janetta, she has become all you ever wanted her to. She takes care of everyone just like you did. I love you and miss you Mom. Happy Mothers Day

Another mother's day without you, I've cried 21 years in a row on this day. Cried for all the hugs and kisses missed by your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Khi and Tylar ask about who you were, I wish we would have made more time for one another when I was a child. Your grand daughter and her son are at a pivotal juncture in their relationship, please help to heal their hearts toward one another. I would never want B to live a life not truly knowing his mother... I miss you momma

Hey Momma, I can hardly believe you've been gone 20 years. I'm older than you were when you left us.. I wish you could have watched Michael grow up. He is a wonderful young man, all the good qualities and Nina well she has 3 children. They are so beautiful and smart, I have no idea who they got that from. It hurts me deeply to have to tell you your little Nina Chick is turning out to be a bad mom, nothing at all like our family. it hurts those kids so much and that really hurts me. you just had a birthday how old are you, 80 you say. I miss You Momma and I'm looking forward to seeing you again someday . Tell Dad and Elissa I LOve THem and you so very much,,...

Hey Mamma, Sitting here thinking about you and missing you so much. You know I'm a year older than you were when you left us. You were so young to have been thru all you went thru. I lost two people last week and they were both in their thirtys. Life goes so fast . Your gone Thomas is gone. Poor Charlie he just couldn't live without you he and Dad are both gone. And one of the hardest loses was Elissa K, Poor thing was in so much pain. I felt like I would die when we lost her. Then Joe left me but not to death but by choice. I still have Janetta and Dave. I wouldn't last 1ong without them. Jayes been my lifeline you would be proud Momma I know I am. I'd like to thing you are watching over us and can see our lives, even thou that's not what we were taught it gives me comfort to believe that. You were the best mom I could ever have I wish we had more time together but I'm grateful for what we had. I Miss You. One day I hope to see you again

Hey Mom, sitting here looking at the picture of you me and elissa. You sure were  beautiful inside and out. I miss you so much Life is really hard when the people that always had your best interest at heart, believed in you and loved you are gone. I always believed when you got married yo would have that but I was very wrong.. I ended up with the opposite and I wish you were here to help me thru this pain and disappointment. I know you would understand and make me feel better but it's just me and I'm really having a hard time moving forward. I feel the best is behind me and I don't like feeling that way. I need yo mom and miss you so much. I love you. Can't wait to be with you.. Your Daughter Pammy

My mom was a wonderful person she taught me how to be strong and encouraged me to be independent .she was a wonderful cook and enjoyed great music which I’ve passed on to her grand children. We still sing to songs in the kitchen and cook together the way she did she will be forever missed but never forgotten . Loved always by her grandchildren son in law and her daughter.❤️

Hey Momma, It's me Pammy, Was thinking about you and looking at your pictures. You were sure a beauty. I miss you so much. I'm so grateful I got to spend that last year with you. And there I was on that last day and for the next 30. I'm sorry to say Charlie just couldn't go on with out you mom as I'm sure your aware. God I pray what happens when we die is what Elissa believed cause if it is then you are all together so many of us. I live for the day when I can be with you all again. I Love You Momma.
