To a very special Auntie:
Aint Frances, as wed say.

I am going to miss you dearly. You fought hard and well. You lived a remarkable life from my view. You displayed beauty through every place life took you. Everyone in your presence benefited from your personality, candor, advice, perspectives, love and unconditional embrace.

I could go on longer, but I know that everyone who knows/loves you understands.

Thank you for all the times you showed me love by spending nights at my house with Nanny. That always blessed me and my kids. We felt so special to anticipate your arrival. You cooked, danced, joked, talked, watched movies and so much- with us. Well have those memories forever.

I know you loved us and you knew we loved you. Thank you.

Rest Well.

Forever in love,

My condolences to her children who were very close to their Mom. She will ALWAYS be my FAVORITE auntie! She was like a second Mom to me, she was always there for me no matter what, she has an amazing amount of love that she gave to many whether biological or friends, she kept me humble at times where I wanted to break! Whenever someone upset me shed always know how to calm me down by saying, neice now what would GOD want you to do and she knew that would calm me down instantly! She always listened to me when others couldnt see or hear me! We are both Libras and I promise you we shared common characteristics! Im kind of ok for I know she left knowing how much I loved her as I knew her love for me. Im pleased I was able to get my last I love you from her while on Facebook, as I was able to tell her one last time I love her. The moment I saw her I saw the that same look I saw in my son and Father face saying goodbye without words! It a certain look I cant explain but I know it was a sign from GOD! The sad part with Life comes death and as much as we want our loved ones to stay forever they must be called back, but at least in my heart I know my auntie went to be with GOD for she made her peace with HIM, she was always a spiritual Lady! When shed use certain words Id always laugh because she made it funny! She was granted her last wish to be at home to go in peace surrounded by her family, you cant tell me she isnt with GOD! I cant say I know anyones pain as no one knows mine but Ill hold on to every memory I made with my auntie, I remember her, Ill keep her in my heart and treasure her with every breathe in me! I Loved my auntie! Crazy cause before this cancer I was talking to my auntie on Facebook listening to that funny mouth of hers trying to fuss at cousin Rain, had me smiling the whole time! To her children, I have absolutely no words to express such pain and grief for you all were so close to your Mom, but if it helps lessen your pain remember shes no more in pain, she was ready to go even tho going she knew she had to leave you all, she knew you all knew her depth of love, shes was one of the BEST Moms I know! My Tiara, my GOD you were her baby and couldnt nobody tell her nothing about you, I love you cousin always have always will and no space could take that away! Vashawn my cousin your grandma loved you to pieces, I know she wants you to stay strong and let no one or nothing break you, I love you cousin and thatll never change! Emotions are all over the place rite now, feelings are being tested, but Ill give myself some sense of comfort knowing shes no longer in pain! She lived an awesome life, she touched many with her love for people, she put smiles on frowned faces, whipped many tears, was the rock for many, the warrior of the pack, tuff as heck even in her final days! LORD knows shell be missed and her absence will be a forever void in many of us! Ive seen many go and wasnt sure which way theyd go, but I am certain my auntie went the rite way with GOD! Cousin Sharon sent me some pics of my auntie just yesterday, and immediately when I saw them I smiled even tho my heart was getting the best of me, I smiled through it all as I felt a shingle go through my body, it felt good and I cant put it in words! I will ALWAYS love my auntie, what I feel wont change with no amount of time! Shes resting in peace where theres no pain, shes smiling down on all of us! Your neice Suzy!
