    It’s taken me a bit of time to finally put something on here – losing my mom has broken my heart in more ways than I could possibly describe. I could not have asked for a better person to have raise me, take care of my children and supporter. Although my mom and some of my siblings were athletic, I was what you might call an average player, at best. But that didn’t stop my mom from cheering me on, supporting me and teaching me. She supported me in my academic achievements and praised me, even though I didn’t always place 1st in my speech competitions. Even when I didn’t come in 1st place in baking competitions, she praised my work and was stunned that I didn’t take 1st place. Her encouragement and support, as previously mentioned was unbelievable and unforgettable. My mom was a giving person and welcomed everyone into her home and family. As a child, I didn’t understand how she could be so welcoming; as an adult, I completely understand and will always strive to be welcoming as she was. She was a great example to me. Her love for us was unmeasurable and unwavering. She was an amazing person that I am so happy and thankful for having in my life. Although, my heart is broken, I know that I will see her again where, I’m sure, she and my dad will welcome me with open arms. I will try to dry my tears and smile again when I remember all the wonderful memories of you. Mom, I love and miss you.

    Hello this is Gianna, daughter of Stacy, Granny’S niece. My Granny watched me since I was 5… and throughout the years I grew to be her helper with watching over the younger kids. I helped by tricking the younger kids into nap time. Granny taught me to pretend to fall asleep so the others could fall asleep too. And then she would awaken me once they were asleep 🙂. I will miss you forever granny 👵🏽! Thank you for taking care of me and loving me.. I will love you forever!!!! See you in ✝️💗💗💗💗💗💝💝💞 -love Gianna G. S.
