    At this time I send my condolences and prayers to the family. She will be missed greatly, I know that she was a wonderful Mother and grandmother. Often times in our conversations she would brag about her grandchildren, often she would say something off the cuff and you could only laugh. To Theresa, Roosevelt, Marsitte, and the grandkids; and the rest of the family, know that I wanted to be there,and in spirit I will be. In one of my last conversations with her, she blessed me so, her faith, her courage, her love for her family, and her love for life will never leave the hears of all who knew her.

    May the Lord comfort you as His peace rests upon you all during this time.

    Wanda
