Mommy, for years we have watched you in the ring going toe to toe round for round with this thing called life. The last couple of rounds me and my sister have been at the ring with our hand out, waiting for you to tag us in so we can help you fight a couple rounds. The fighter in you would not let us. This final round you got tired and that’s ok. We know that every battle you gave your all, even the ones we didn’t know about. Now you can finally rest! No more fighting my Love only rest!! I Love you so much and you will forever be in my heart!

Loretta,
Words cannot express my shock of losing yet another sister. You definitely fought the way you wanted to fight and ended things on your terms. I now understand your actions over the last several weeks. I just don't know if you were trying to save me from this hurt or what.  No one can argue with the comfort you are experiencing now. Does it make it easier? Absolutely no. I promise to keep looking after my nieces. You will forever be in my heart. Love you!

Dear Mother,

Where do I begin……let me first tell you that I love you! One can only think that you were Muhammad Ali’s daughter because you fought like no other. Your heart and soul were so pure. If I could describe you in 3 words it would be: Strong…..you endured but yet you persevered; Beautiful….a heart of a lion but dainty like a little princess;
Unique……you never waivered, never afraid to be yourself, and you are ONE of a kind (literally). This is not to say goodbye, as this is only a temporary separation. I love you with every ounce of my being❤️. See you later Love! Tori
