"Happy Birthday, Mom!

I had beautiful thoughts of you the other day that put a smile on my face and a joy in my heart.

Jim and I attended the Waller-Patterson Family Reunion and I truly enjoyed meeting some of daddy's family members for the first time and reminiscing with others.

Because of your birth, your union with my dad...I was created and I will always honor you for being my Mom!

Thank you for always allowing and supporting me to be me, your first born.

I celebrate you today and honor you everyday!

With my deepest Love, Zenobia"

"It's hard to believe three years has passed since I last touched your face, held your hands, read scriptures to you and sang the song you taught us as children, "God is Able".

Yes, God is able. He was able to take away your pain.  He was able to give me much needed comfort when your ship sailed away. He was and is able to wipe away my tears.

Yes, God and only God is able!

Thank you, Lord"

"Mommy, two years ago today you transitioned to be with the Lord. Oh, how I miss and Love you so!!!

I didn't cry today. Actually, I laughed, eat a big fat turkey and enjoyed time with Jim, Janet and RD. Time clearly does mend a broken heart.

Thank you for teaching us to Live and to Live by our own terms.

     MISS YOU!!!!!!!!

     LOVE YOU!!!!!!!!!"

This tribute was added by Zenobia Bass on 4th May 2014

"One year ago, May 3, 2013, my heart was severely broken, shattered into many small pieces because you took your last breath.

Now today, May 4, 2014, although I miss you deeply, my heart is mending, the pieces are being gathered and carefully placed in their respective places.

I no longer exist in a fog, the storm has moved through, the clouds have cleared away and I can now see the sun and the blue skies. I'm beginning to live life again, not at 100%, but making progress.

I laugh more than I cry;
I give thanks to God for his wisdom instead of blaming him for................ taking..... you.......;
I no longer see a situation how I want it to be or people how I want them to be; no, Now I see a situation as it is and people as they are and I deal with both according to God's words and plans for me;

Thank you for the abundance of gifts you gave to me as your daughter:

the gift of life
the gift of love
the gift of encouragement
the gift of allowing me to make mistakes
the gift of correcting me when needed
the gift of forgiving
the gift of understanding
the gift of sacrificing
the gift of speaking into me and showing me that I am special
the gift of assuring me that I can and will achieve whatever I set my mind to
the gift of  your wisdom
the gift of enduring the things that only a mother would endure
the gift of many examples of courage
the gift of understanding the value of solitude
the gift of giving
the gift of knowing when to say "no"
the gift of marching to my own beat
the gift of being free to be me
the gift of boo koos of memories

I love you Mom and I look forward to seeing you again on the other side, its all in God's master plan.

I will always be looking up to you."

"Good afternoon Mommy,

Today is the first Mother's Day that I will not be able to hear your voice or see your beautiful face, when I say "Happy Mother's Day, Mom".  Yet, when I close my eyes, I can feel your love, the kind of love that transcends time and space, a Mother's Love. Thank you Mom!!!"

"We do not mourn like those without hope because to absent from the body is to be present with the Lord and there is an assurance of a future reunion. Though I never met Ms. Waller I heard much about her life of faith through her daughter and my brilliant college professor - Dr. Zenobia Bass who is a great testament to her mother's legacy. To the Waller family, please accept my condolences."

This tribute was added by Rantine McKesson on 10th May 2013

"I never met Ms. Waller, but my heartfelt sympathy extends to the Waller family.  I am a recent student of Professor Zenobia Bass & it was there I feel I came to know that only a strong woman with vigor and a thirst for love and life could raise a woman as dynamic as Zenobia Bass.  So it is with much love and respect for her daughter Zenobia that I send these thoughts.  She is well again."

This tribute was added by Katrina Patterson on 10th May 2013

"To Deborah, Zee, Sonia and Janet, may you find comfort in the arms of God during this very difficult time.  Mrs. Waller left a memorable legacy that will continue for many years to come.  Deborah, D'Shawn, and Kyera we are always here for you and know that we are always a phone call away,  She has laid down her cross and picked up her crown!  Love Always, Katrina, Desmond & Carl Patterson"

"Mrs. Waller has been a very instrumental person in my life.  As a child growing up, she was like a second mother to me as I would spend many days and nights at her home with her daughter Janet ( my best friend) and her sisters; Zee, Sonia, &  Deborah.  Thank you for loving me as I loved you. R.I.P.  May God bless the Family during these times!"
