I loved all of times we got to go hang out with you at the Transportation Museum. I loved all the talkes we had when I would just drop by and hang out. You were like my second mom. I love you and will truly miss you. Fly high Aunt LaWanda

I'm so sorry for your loss. Your mother was always so nice to me and always welcomed me to stay at her home. She was a wonderful person.
