We Love You

Shared by Joyce Hopson on November 20, 2015

Just want you to know that we are hanging in there and how the spirit of our ancestors keeps us going everyday. You are in our hearts forever. The family has and will continue to put our arms around each other to lift those that are weak to the strong bond that was instilled in us by the great love and parenting skill of all of you. It takes a village to raise a child. Love you Sister, one of your favorite niece, Dr. Joyce Hopson.

Missing you

Shared by Meco Cheathem on November 17, 2014

Well Mother....I was just sitting here at work thinking about you.  Sometimes when I feel I need to be close to you, I just come here and it give me some concilation.  I really wish you would have gotten a chance to meet your two new grandbabies. (serenity/kaelin).  They are growing like a weed.  Well I just wanted to say...I love you and I miss you.  I always have a hard time around this time of the year...

Love u always,


My Aunt Sis

This is very nice Meshun, you got the ball rolling and we will keep it going. As I type, I'm in the classroom and tears are coming down my face, however, I don't have anything to be ashame of because they are happy tears. I loved my Auntie like she was my mother because they (Mama and Aunt Sis) were like sisters instead of sister-in-law. I heard Mama (Vira Hopson) tell someone the other day that Aunt Sis and her were closer than her own sister. The love for each other has always been there and will continue to fight for each other. My family members lets put our arms around the one that is weak and make that link strong. I will be visiting back and writing because I have so much to say. When I got the news, I was at a basketball game (high school), Billy Wayne called me and I couldn't hear him because of the tgame so I told him I would call him back and he said, "Listen Sister, they just found Aunt Sis," from that point I just lost it-the Principal, Doctors, Security, Mama and Friends were trying to find out what was going on.....

Memories of all types-traveling, singing, Easter egg hunts, protection from Daddy sometime (smile), chatting, telephone conversation, shopping buying clothes (suits) taking pictures with Angela Davis, Susan Taylor in IN at Madame CJ Walker Museum, visiting and sleeping in each other bed-AR and FL, going visiting the sick, watching basketball, soaps, or calling to find out what happen on the show that I didn't watch, hotels & condo stays, cooking, volunteering and teaching how to..the list go on and on.

I found this poem in Joshua scrapbook that I had given him on Senior NIght and I'm going to type it in but I will revisit this website after I get home: Aunt Sis would want me to pass this on to each of my family member and friends---

If I Knew It Would Be The Last TIme-Author Unknown

If I knew it would be the last time and I'd see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord your soul to keep, If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time, I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day, If I knew it would be the last time, I could space an extra minute or two, to stop and say that "I Love You," Instead of assuming that you know I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, well, I'm sure you'll have so many more, So I can let this one slip away. For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight and we always get a second chance to make everything alright. There will always be another day to sazy our "I Love You's," And certainly there's another chance to say our "Anything I can do's." But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I'd like to say how much I love you and hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike. And today may the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So, if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day, That you didn't take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or kiss, And you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them. And that you'll always hold them dear. Take the time to say "I'm sorrry," "Please forgive me," Thank you," or "It's OK." And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have no regrets about today.

Aunt Sis loved her family and the family loved her-I have to give my cousin credit-you guys took care of your Mom and Dad. Keep your head up high, its going to be good and bad days but the good days will outweight the bad one. Have a blessed day. One of her Favorite Niece-Dr. Joyce Hopson-Longmire (Better known to some Sister!)


My GrandMother

 I've often wondered "why", why did my grandmother have to leave us so soon?!?! The years have gone so fast, it seem like i didnt get to express my truest thoughts to you! Many years, you've taught me many valuable lesson without knowing you did or maybe you were very aware. I've always been that type to keep all of my feelings and emotions tucked deep inside yet, when we would talk on the phone it seem to me you told me all! My days seem weiry, lost for more answers. I"ve always heard, tell the people you love how much you care for them because you just might not get that chance again. I sit in my office tears running down my face knowing that statement is so surreal! All i can say now is thank you for the lasting memories you instilled in us, thank you for the best and i do mean best MOTHER in the world in Sharon Delois Moss! From the wippings i recieved, from the positive messages, i learned from each situation and from that im grateful! Its hard not to cry, its hard not to wonder why but i do understand the end was near. I know without a shadow of any doubt you are in heaven basking in God's glory! I miss you!

To my grandmother, my mother, my doctor, my lawyer, my psychologist, my confidant, my friend. I miss you more than I could ever know.  My life has came to almost a standstill since you left.  Oh what am I suppose to do in this big ole world now without you.  I just depended on you to tell me things I already knew just because you were my mother.  Oh how I wish I could hear you tell me, " You need to go put some shoes on that baby feet", or how when I would get sick, you would tell me to get some "sass" and rub on my chest was always the answer for everything...but I never really knew what "sass" was! But I trusted you, if you said it...then it was settled...a done deal. We had our routine down pack..on Tuesday or Thursday nite...that was our fish nites.  I knew if I was coming your way, I needed to go by Neighbors store to get, as you would say, "just stop and get me a few pieces of that fish and a few of them potatoes, and I got your money when you get here". But til this day, I haven't seen no money yet!!!(smile) You owed me nothing, I owed you everything!! Thank you for raising me as your own.  If I had it to do all over again, I would have done so many things different. I wouldn't have worried you at times..I would have cherished every moment with you..but you didn't every send me any sign that you were getting tired.  I remember my last days with you.  Me and my buddy (you) just hanging out in, peddling around..just enjoying life!...And on Valentine's Day, I came and brought you your Valentine from me and were so happy that nite.  We watched the True Believers on your dvd and just laughed about that guitarist.." I love to see that boy play that thang!" you would say everytime you seen it.  I never thought that Tuesday morning, February 15, 2011 would be the last time I would ever see you again.  I had already made plans to come stay with you that Thursday nite, but they called me and told me you had gone on home.  Why didn't you warn me...I wasn't ready for you to go...I just needed you just a little longer here with me.  I thought I was strong about this, but I knew that then and even now...that I am only standing in the strength of the Lord...thats why I appreciate my relationship with Him so. And I thank you for the relationship that you had with Him, cause He let me know that "It was well with you", and thats all I needed to hear to get me through! We should be thankful to God for all things, and I do thank God that he took you suddenly and peacefully, I didn't and don't ever want to see anybody I love suffer again. I thank Him, that He took you while you were reading the book of Luke, and I believe that your heart, mind, and soul was ready to meet the Lord.  I thank God for allowing you to be my grandmother for 83 years. And I will now and will always love you! 

Your granddaughter,

Meshun (smile)
