She is survived by her three children, her five grandchildren; Tani, Courtney, Francisco, Johnathan and Dominiq as well as her great grandchild Naima. 

God saw as you were getting tired
A cure was not to be
So he wrapped His arms around you
And whispered 'Come with Me.'

With tearful eyes
We watched you suffer
And saw you fade away
Although we loved you dearly
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating
Hard working hands laid to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
