Too My Sweet Aunt TeeTee
You were and are still a Jewel, Heaven gained a wonderful person, Who loved everyone! I recall you always sitting on the porch on that phone as I was driving by and one day saying "You got your license and I said nope, You looked and said boy be careful" and that I did! I will miss your laughter, Those daytime hellos from the porch and just you in general! May your soul rest in Gods Blossom.
To My Aunt Berneta; I cannot say it will be easy but I hope you find comfort in these lyrics " My soul is resting, It's just a blessing, Praise the lord, Hallelujah I'm free!" I can hear your mom saying those words! Be not dismayed, Auntie B whatever be tied you God will take care of you! I love You, Jay, Derrick,And Jaiden.
