You have journeyed beyond what man can comprehend. You are with the father now. May he be pleased with your diligent and love-driven labor. My words have been taken from my lips in this time of bereavement but I know you see the rivers of sentiment flowing from my heart. Rest well big sis.

Momma, I'm going to miss you, but I am so glad to have had this space in time with you. God knew my siblings and I would need to lessons you've taught us over the years. You're the hardest working woman I've ever known, and I'm so grateful to be your daughter. Love forever, your Boo Bear.

My favorite memories that only Natalie would understand: I-96 to I-94 curve from The Temple going to the eastside; Holcomb St.; sleepovers; Van Dyke and East Jefferson areas. As years went on we grew up and went our own path to form our own personal lives but we were sisters in spirit and just a phone call away. I will miss you Natalie. I just thought you were one of the ones who would be around forever. Praying for the family!

I have many great memories of Natalie. First of which as an awesome praise and worship leader at ATOP. I will miss the times she would come over for dinner after church and we would share our favorite gospel songs from back in the day. I will also miss her as a wonderful sister (in law) and Aunt. We always knew the children were well taken care of when we were away. Natalie's memory will always be in our hearts. Definitely gone too soon.

Hey big sis. I am truly at a loss for words. Gone too soon. You've always shown your strength even when going through hard times. You held strong to the word of God, even until the end. Love always, Your little sister Donna

To my eldest auntie, you will be great missed. I want to thank you for what you've left on this earth. Your children are technically my cousins but have been raised as my brothers and sister(s). I believe in my heart that you are now in a peaceful place with your daughter.

Love you always auntie,
Quentin

It would be remiss of me not to write on your page, especially with all the different experiences we had the pleasure to enjoy together! However, since I don’t want to write a book, I will share the two events and experiences we had together that forever changed my life. Some people may have the perspective that “You never miss a person, until they are gone,” is a myth! I declare that statement is true and a fact. One thing I can say about you, is that you would pray for and with everybody!!! No matter what you were doing, if someone called you for prayer, you would stop whatever you were doing and pray, as well as encourage during the process. First, when we moved to Atlanta your house was the only house that I knew how to get too!!!! I would drive to your house, and you took time out of your busy schedule to show us the true heart of Atlanta, and I will forever be grateful for that! Lord knows I loved Atlanta so much, I was hoping Woody went to Morehouse, and Kayla & Kyra would attend Spelman so I could make my way back to Atlanta. God always have different plans, so I have learned to understand that “His thoughts are not like our thoughts , neither his ways like our ways!” Secondly, we endured a similar test, it was hot, and heavy but you Natalie encouraged me beyond measures, and that changed my perspective, my thoughts, my process, and my life!!!!!! You left your testimony with me....You said people will lie on you, they will talk about you, they will tell you that you’re not sad enough, you’re not crying enough, and you said not only did they treat Jesus like that, but that you experienced it yourself when your baby girl passed!!!!! People told you you weren’t grieving enough, but you said they didn’t see your tears, how you cried out to the Lord, and you got your deliverance when God spoke to you! God brought back to your remembrance that when your baby girl was three years old, she got real sick and they didn’t think she was going to make it, but you cried out to the Lord, and said “Lord I don’t even know what she want to be when she grows up,” please give me ten more years. So when he gave you actually what you asked for you found peace within. That testimony helped me plenty of times, especially during my test, trials, and tribulations!!!! I guess I wrote a short story after all!!!! You will be forever missed, but always in my heart! You are known to be the ultimate peacemaker, who didn’t tolerate foolishness. You kept the faith, and you worked two and three jobs at a time, so rest in heaven now Natalie, because you have arrived to the peace that passes all understanding, and the true joy that is unspeakable and full of glory!!!!!!!!

My heart is broken. You left earth too soon, but, while you were here, thank you for looking out for me helping to make sure I was good. You were a true example of a Sister momma - my blood sister who also took the role as another mother to help guide me through this journey called life.

You lived the holy life, sacrificed so much for others, fought the good fight and kept the true faith unto the end. I know where your final resting place is. You are in a place I have visited at least once and never wanted to leave, so, as the Lord allowed you to stay there, continue to take your rest.I know you are always going to be alright and will never, ever suffer again.

We were sisters on earth and will remain sisters forever when I shall see you again in that place which is by invitation only from His majesty Jesus Christ. There we shall never again part. You got the victory Big Sis. You lost nothing because to live is Christ but to die is gain. God is good.

Your "SugaPuda"
