"Hey girl and the rest of the rowdy bunch. Just stopped by to give you some highlights of the holiday. Ollie Mae came home for Christmas and New Year! Girl Christmas was the bomb! We had a wonderful time singing and watching and listening to the children sing Jingle-Go-Belle. It was so awesome to see everyone come together to enjoy the holidays. Don't worry we lifted you all up in prayer because we were missing another link in the chain (Albert). As you know we had plenty of food, drinks, etc., so much that everyone left with 2 or 3 plates. We celebrated New Year's Eve in a Watch Night Service at a neighboring church. I did the traditional New Year dish with the black eyed peas, cabbage greens, ribs, dressing, and corn bread. It was good sis! I'm just catching you guys up on what's going on here with the family. Tell everyone hello and we miss them especially around the holidays. I love you guys and will see you guys later. Caldonia!"

The family came together on Thanksgiving and Ollie Mae was here helping us celebrate and being thankful for family and friends. Sorry it took so long to post but with the kids and part time job its be rather busy around here. But you know that you all are always in out hearts on any day. Praying that you all are enjoying each other up there in heaven. How is our brother Albert coming along? I know you guys are showing him the ropes up there in heaven. Let everyone know that I checked in with you so they won't be worried. I will post about our Christmas holiday after Christmas. This is all for now big sis and give my love to all. I love you, Caldonia"

"Hey big sis! I know you thought I had forgotten your birthday but It's been a busy and emotional day for me today. But hey! I stopped by to say Happy 67th Birthday up in Heaven! Girl I can imagine you and the crew are up there celebrating and being silly. That's what I miss most about you guys. Nothing was to crazy for this family and it kept us laughing while creating everlasting memories of the days gone by. Hope you and the rest are enjoying this day and I can see Albert dancing around. Sis, give my love to everyone and I will continue to keep you all updated on what is going on with us. I love you and the rest so very, very, much! With Love, Caldonia."

"Hey big sis and every one else! Stopping by to let you guys know that the church Homecoming was today 10/01/17 and we represented you guys well with the family fund raiser with a total of $3,390.00! The family came together once again for this honor. I think we did a fantastic job considering the circumstances of loosing our brother Albert. I hope you guys are proud of us and the way we represent you all in spirit and love. I can't begin to tell you all how much your presence is missed here by all of us. But I know we will see each other again. I love you guys and just wanted you all to know that. Keep watch over us and take good care of each other until we meet again. I love you all with all my heart and miss you all so. Love Caldonia!"

"Hey big sis, stopping by to let you all know that our last brother Albert transitioned on September 1, 2017. I want you guys to welcome him and show him how to use his wings. We had a good visit on August 5th where he was still able to move around being his normal self, just had lost a lot of weight. We had another visit on the 26th this time he was in pain, sleeping most of the time, and starring off into space. I knew at this last visit that it was only a matter of time because I had the dream again where two of my foster kids were drowning but they were going down slowly. God once again prepared me for what was about to happen and I thank him. Ollie Mae flew in on the 26th to attend the family reunion from September 1-3, not knowing her trip would turn into going to a funeral, but God worked it out that way. We managed to attend the picnic at he reunion to ease our minds. No doubt we stood A-Team strong right by his side until the very end. It broke our hearts to loose him but we all know that he is in a better place. Also September 6th this is the one year mark for Roger and daddy's 99th birthday is on September 12th. You guys have a wonderful time celebrating Albert's homecoming. Tell everyone hello and we will lay him to rest on Saturday, September 9, 2017. Love you all with all my heart. Caldonia!"

"Hey big sis. Just had to stop by your page because you are heavy on my mind. Today is your 2nd year mark since you transitioned to be with the other family. I'm wishing you all love until we meet again. As the song says: "I will always love all of you guy." I love and miss you my big sister. Caldonia"

"Hey, hey big sis! Just stopped by your page to give you the update for the 2017 4th of July family gathering. Girl it was wonderful and everyone had lots of fun especially the kids. Sis, those kids played in the water all day long. The food was plenty and good. I think everyone had a good time especially me. I could picture you guys in my mind acting silly if you all were still here. Let Kenny know that the Thrill is coming back to the hill. Sis give everyone a big hug for me please and let them know that they are missed dearly by us all. Just wanted to keep in touch and let you all know how we are getting along. Love you all until we meet in the sky. Caldonia!"

"Hey big sis! We managed another Mother's Day without you and mom. It was depressing but we continue to push ourselves forward because that would be what you all would want us to do. Also, Tamira graduated on Friday, May 19, 2017. Joan posted pictures on the family chant and she was beautiful. They all were happy and so am I. Thanking God for all he is doing in this family. Laura and I attended a Mother's Day Gospel Explosion at the Jr. High School and we enjoyed it. Tell all the guys hi and I'll send them a note on Father's Day. Love you all until we meet again. Caldonia!"

"Hey there! Letting you and the rest of the gang know that Albert will begin his Chemo treatments shortly. He had the port surgical implanted in his chest today at Merit Health Hospital in Natchez. The little guy is like you have always said big sis, "He's stronger than leather." Yeap the A-Team is at it again praying for him all the way! He has made it through every storm that came upon him and we know that God will help him through this one. As I've stated some time back that the rain may hit and batter us on the outside, but it's making us stronger on the inside to endure whatever trials and storms that may come our way. Thought you guys may want to know, but don't worry we are strong. Now high five everyone up there and tell them that I love and miss them all dearly."

"Hey there big sister! Tell Kenneth that I'm wishing him a very happy birthday today up in heaven. I know there will be a party going on up there because he has most of the gang there with him. Now don't you guys party to hard or you might get kicked out!!! I will stick close to Laura today because I know she will be thinking of you more today by it being your special day and all. Gosh!! How you guys are truly missed here on the land but I know we will all meet again soon. Now you guys have a good time celebrating but don't over do it okay!! Give everyone a high five and tell them that I love and miss them so very much. Later my sweet brother. Ms. Cal"

"Hey there big sis and all the rest of the gang! Stopping by to let you know that you all were in our hearts on Valentine's Day. Things are just not the same since you all went home but we're hanging in there. I came down with the flu and it wasn't anything nice. I'm still having symptoms of something. I love you and let the others know that they are loved too. Miss you guys and will always think about you all each and every day that passes. Until next time I'm sending kisses, hugs, and love to you all. Caldona"

"Hey, hey, big sister. Stopping by to say Happy New Year "2017" up in Heaven to you and the rest of the gang. We attended Watch Night service at the Greater Faith Worship Center to bring in the year. We had a wonderful time! The singing was excellent, a lot of people told their testimonies, and the pastor preached up until 2 minutes before the new year. I miss you guys and things just aren't the same without you all being her. I know that you all are happy and that strengthen my heart. Tell everyone else Happy 2017 and I love and miss them too. Love you all..."

"Hey big sister! Coming to you so you can pass the word on to the rest of the gang. Stopping by to share our Christmas gathering. Girl it was wonderful having the family come together to celebrate. We had fun for you guys too because that's the way you all would have wanted it to be. We miss all of you so very much but we knew you all were smiling down on us with love and enjoying us act up having fun with Karaoke. I couldn't get the video to upload because it was to large. But it was hilarious! Shamekia did that thing with the singing and we backed her up! I've never felt so alive since the last two years. So Merry Christmas 2016 and a Happy 2017 for all of us!"

"Hey sis! Well we laid Thomas to rest at the Natchez National Cemetery on Monday, October 31, 2016. He had a beautiful Home going Celebration on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at the Pilgrim B.C., in Natchez. Now you all take care of each other and try to stay out of heavenly trouble. Seems like every year and now every month someone is transitioning. I'm not sad but I miss all of you guys presence here with the family. Give everyone a hi-five and continue to watch over the family until we meet again. Love all you guys! Caldonia"

"Well big sis I just stopped by your memorial to let you know that your brother-in-law Thomas transitioned last night around 8:30 p.m. I know you guys will welcome him. Take good care of him as you all stroll down the streets of gold. Tell mama I know she couldn't tell me who was coming home that's why she got choked on that cracker. But I understand now what she was trying to say. I tried to have the family meeting before now but had to cancel because I couldn't get everyone together on the 18th. So I'm going to cancel the one for the 25th until everyone is up to coming together for a meeting. Sorry Thomas had to leave us but it was his time to meet the Father. Take care of each other until we meet. Love you guys!  Love Caldonia."

"This tribute is for you big sister on your 66th birthday. October 17, 2016

Not Gone

In my heart you are still here
Calming all my worries and fears
From this earth you may be gone
But in my heart you still belong
So as every year since you left me
I visit the place where you used to be
I am still sending you birthday wishes
With floral tributes and a ton of kisses

Happy Heavenly 66th Birthday big sister. I love and miss you so much!

Love you Carolyn"

"Hi there big sis! Just stopping by to let you know that your big brother transitioned on September 6th. It broke our hearts once again because we had made the one year mark with your passing on July 22, 2015 and now him. Welcome him and make him feel at home with the rest of you guys. The links in the chain is getting shorter every year. Seems like we loose someone every year. God give us the strength to endure. Just want to let you, daddy, mama, Benny, Sunny, Kenny and now Roger to know that I love and miss you guys so much. Things aren't the same without you guys. The family still get together but nothing is like it was when you guys were here. Heaven have gained a spunky bunch this time. Hope you guys are holding it down up there because you all were some naughty when we got together. Take care of each other until we meet again. So big sis tell them all that I said I'll see them later. Love y'all!"

"Hi big sister. Just stopped by your page to let you know that Lamont tied the knot on August 27, 2016 at 2:30 in the evening in Natchez. It was beautiful and my heart was filled with joy to see my only son take a wife. Everything was beautiful including the reception. Sitting here on this lazy Labor Day doing nothing. We will go visit your oldest brother "Roger" today in the nursing home. That's right I didn't tell you in my dreams that he suffered a stroke which left him unable to speak and use his right side. He sleep most of the time, but will open his eyes every now and them when you call his name. That's why it is very important to love and tell family how much you love them before the precious flowers fade away never to bloom again. Let the rest of the crew know about Lamont's wedding and Roger being ill. I love and miss you guys so very much. Love ya! Caldona"

This tribute was added by Carolyn Wyatt on 26th July 2016

"Well big sis the 22nd of this month in July is the one year mark since you left for Heaven. The pain is felt by all but we are still strong. Letting you all know that big brother Roger is in the hospital with a stroke. It looks like a long process for him, but we will do all we can for him. I can't tell you and the rest how much we miss you all especially around holidays. We managed to get through the 4th but it wasn't the same. Just seem like a part of me died right along with you guys. Give my love to the gang and you all continue to watch over us until we come home. Love and miss you all dearly."

"Hi big sis. As you know the Thanksgiving holiday is drawing near and the closer it gets the more down and out I become. Last year we prayed the prayer of strength behind mama and this year if the Lord keep me hear, we have to say the prayer of strength behind Kenneth and you. I often sit around listening to songs and reading messages posted here on your page trying to hold back the tears and be strong. These three deaths will take time to get over. Don't get me wrong, I'm better than I was a couple of months ago but going through the first of everything without you all is depressing. Lord! I really need you to hold my hand and help me to be strong. A couple of nights ago I saw you lying on the floor in your apartment. Don't know why this happened because I was doing good blocking that out. Never the way I wanted to remember you. I see they have moved someone into your apartment. Be good and don't bother the nice lady. By the way on your next visit to my house in spirit, check out Medea, the plant that you re-potted for me. Girl she is growing wild but she is beautiful! I love you big sis and miss you something terrible. Tell all of them hi and I love and miss them too. Tell Kenny to stop strutting like a Turkey and look at mama sitting in that recliner. Daddy is on the sofa watching The Young and Restless so he can keep everyone updated, Sonny on that darn motorcycle, and Tommy eating his chicken leg drinking a cup of coffee. Love you guys until next time......."

"Hi there. Just stopped by to wish you a happy 65th birthday.  We visited and clean around your grave today.  We wanted all our love ones to look good.  You especially because this would have been your day to celebrate.  Now my love you are officially tax exempt.  We went out to dine in honor of your birthday.  We thought about you and your funny laugh.  So, happy birthday and love and miss you.  Wishing you were still here! Love you and enjoy your 65th with the rest of the gang in Heaven.  Your sis Carolyn."

"I felt your present in my room last night. I saw the small bright light move out the door. Thanks for watching over me and making sure that I'm okay. I'm better now and no need for you to worry. I sung your song (Long As I Got King Jesus, I Don't Need Nobody Else) to myself all day today because I was feeling alone. I know that Saturday will be your 65th birthday and you are not here to celebrate it. You was so excited about becoming 65 and being tax exempts (Ha, Ha) that was our laugh. I want to thank you again for all the encouraging remarks you offered me and my children. You always gave them praise when no one else did, thank you. You lifted me as I did you when we both were down in spirit. No one could speak with authority like you did, but it kept me with a leveled head. I thank you for everything and wish that you could be still here to dine with the family on Saturday celebrating your day, October 17th. Tell the gang hello and I know they are being nosy trying to read your post. Tell Kenny I hear him saying "Gee-Mo-Nellie," and mama asking "what is she writing?," Daddy, Sunny, and Tommy are just sitting back being quiet. Well I love you all and miss you all from being here but I know you all are in a much better place with nothing but peace. Good night for now but I will keep in touch. I will always love you big sister. Amen."

"Found myself thinking about you today. I guess it's because I have turned another year old and I missed your happy birthday wishes. I just sit staring at your pictures posted on this site and had to write to you. I'm better with the image I hold in my mind of you lying there on the floor. Don't think I will ever get it out of my head, but I can deal with it better now. No need for you to worry about me with that. I know you visit often because you can't sit in the corner without making all that popping noise. So stop worrying, I'll be okay. I won't you to rest and watch over me keeping all hurt, harm, and danger away. Give my love to the rest of the gang and tell them I love and miss them also. Love you big sis and miss you tremendously."

"Always Remember

As she blossomed into a rose
We got to see her best and worst side,
We loved her to death
But then she died.

She was loved by many
And hated by some,
She may have been different
But God wanted her to come.

A beautiful voice
That reflected her smile,
We will always remember
That she was worth while.

As I sit here and write this
Tears stream down my face,
I miss my sister and
That feeling can not be replaced.

I Love and Miss You Big Sister!!

"Just wanted to say goodbye in the way
I never got the chance to
and that you will always be loved and have
the most special place in my heart and that
of my children and grandchildren through
your pictures and the memories I have of
I miss you everyday.
You were my best friend, not just my sister
and the love I feel for you will never die.
My tribute to my friend and sister:
Time changes many things and some
dreams come apart,
But nothing can reach or change the love
for you that lives
within my heart.
  Miss you sister but I know you are happy
and in a better place.
                      Love, Joann"

"Missing My Sister and Best Friend

Shared by Carolyn Wyatt on 08/17/2015

One Wednesday evening on July 22nd I found you in eternal sleep;
I tried to wake you as I began to weep,
But all my pleas you could not hear;
Oh if I could have only kept you near,
Away from the voices of those who went before, Who beckoned you to come to that distant shore.

I find it so very hard to believe
That you have gone and I must grieve;
I call out your name -- you answer not,
And I look for you in every familiar spot.
Everything seems so strange and surreal,
I ask every day is it a dream or real?

Where are the soft brown eyes of affection?
Where is the laughter and talk of childhood reflection?
Where is the loving care when I was sick or sad?
Where is the generous soul for which I was glad?
Where is the forgiving and understanding heart?
Where are the bonds that were there from the start?

I miss all the little ways you showed you cared,
For there were so many good moments we shared;
Looking back on my life's assorted scenes,
I realized you taught me what love truly means;
You were my trusted confidante and best friend,
On whose loving support I could always depend.

I look at your smiling face in all my photos;
Memories flood my mind as I touch the mementos
From the happy times you and I have had,
But now these bring tears and make me sad;
For the time together went by in a wink,
Life was not as long as we'd like to think.

Sometimes memories bring comfort and make me smile,
But there are times when grief takes over for a while;
Friends offer gentle words and prayers to console,
And tell me what has happened to your loving soul;
Can it be true what they say of time healing grief?
Is it enough when they say death has given you relief?

Can we believe what others say of a better place,
Where our beloved ones rest in God's warm embrace?
I should be happy you're free of pain and sorrow,
And rejoice that you'll always have tomorrow.
How can I then be so heartbroken and selfishly cry,
Return to me from that peaceful place where you lie!"

Now I look down at your name on a cold hard stone
That says little of the loving light you have shone;
It tells nothing of the wonderful person you were,
And only serves to remind me of the painful loss I endure;
But I know your kind soul wants no tears or pain,
Instead you'd want warm memories and love to remain.

Although I cry and stand grief-stricken by your grave,
I promise not to forget the loving memories you gave;
But still I miss you so very much my sister dear,
And your caring words I once again long to hear;
My heart's only solace is one day I will see you as before,
Beckoning me to come join you on that white distant shore.

I love and miss you so big sis,

Carolyn and as you would say "(Cal-dona)""

"To my loving Grandmother,
I will miss you greatly. I will miss our talks, your laughter, and your presence. One thing I will never have to miss is your love because I feel it all around me everyday. I know you are still here with us, and we love you for looking down on us. Until next time, I love you, I miss you.""

""My amazing big sister, oh how my heart hurt! I miss our texting, Facebook posts, visits, and phone calls. You knew your time was drawing near because in so many words you told us. Only if I could have been by your side to watch you take your journey to the other side. You came to me to assure the family that you are now HAPPY and not to worry, because we will meet again. Miss everything about you and it hurts like crazy. Big sis I know you have found peace and comfort with the others on the beautiful shore. You are another beautiful flower added to the garden. So farewell for now, but we will meet again and you will welcome me with that beautiful smile. Farewell for now and I love you dearly." See you later!!"
