"This woman was and will always be an amazing woman. She did so much for everyone. She knew how to make you laugh when you needed it the most. She was always herself and didn't change for anyone. With her family always came first no matter what. If anyone was upset or something she was always there no matter what. This amazing woman will be missed so much. You were and still are loved. You were taken because there is something special planned for you, you were needed up there. I love you soooooo much Mema!!!! "
