Ashley and Family,
Your momma was such a sweet, caring, kind heart woman! I loved her so much! I will miss talking to her. She remembered my birthday and would call me on holidays as if I was her own daughter. I am SO glad I went to see her last July. It hasn't even been a year. I was suppose to take her to eat the next time I went out to Alabama. This makes me so sad.

Ashley! Please keep in touch with me, sister! Love you bunches!!!

My condolences to the family and friends from me and my daughters. A mother's greatest masterpiece is her children. I known a mother can't be replaced. I know you will miss her to the moon and back. But I assure you that LOVE never dies.
