I Love grandma and she loved her family!! I dont care that I am not mentioned in anything but stop the disrespectful post on this guestbook. It hurts enough that we lost our grandma.we had so many happy memories with her the last time I say here she was excited to see us even if she didnt remember me. Dementia is a really bad disease. Please stop the disrespect!!! I Love the times she came and stayed at the house when daddy got sick and we couldn't go to see her because he couldn't travel.

To Tina : your mother was a warm and kind person. My husband and I lived across the street and we periodically would exchange conversation about the neighborhood. After she moved, she would come by to visit us and it was a joy to see how she was doing. Please know that God has called her home to rest. May God’ love comfort and strengthen you and your family through this difficult time. Sheila and william monroe 60th Street

Dear Tina prayers go out to you & your family. Your family babysat my brother & I when I was about 4 or 5 years old while my parents were going through their divorce. Even though I was so young I remember the care & love your family gave us during that time. Your mom was very special. Keeping you in my thoughts during this time and praying God covers you with comfort through the coming days.
