I never really got a chance to meet her; although I heard so many stories from sam(my ex). I heard she was a loving mother and an amazing grandmother to sam! I’m so sorry to the whole family, I just wish I had the chance to know her like all of you did; you all will be forever in my prayers.

It is so difficult to lose a parent. Your mom was a wonderful, kind woman. She was always a good friend to my parents. We were all blessed to have had wonderful parents. Many good memories growing up in West Bellaire. Thinking of you guys- may God bless you at this difficult time

Dear Sharon and Alan and Family, I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your mother. She will surly be missed and never forgotten. She was so kind and sweet and I have so many good memories growing up visiting you guys in Bellaire, going to Cedar Point and such. I know how you feel as you know I lost my dad when he too was about the same age of 90 and those were good and mostly healthy years for the both of them which is pretty good now a days. You can also bet she’s up in heaven with your dad and the rest of her family. You are in our thought and prayers and if and when you come to town we would still like to see you. I am here if you need to talk. Much Love, Debbie
