Notes from her family:
Our Hearts are ton into a million
pieces. We knew this day would come
but not this soon. Nothing could prepare
us for this day, we had good times, we
had bad times, but through it all we loved
you. Our hearts are broken, this pain cuts
deep but we know God needed you, Bee.
Even though we are sad and will miss you
dearly, we find comfort knowing you are
Lorean, Hattie, Julie, Trisha, and Vanzie
Dear gma, we are very sad and deeply heartbroken that you're gone. Honestly, I still can't believe it and I still expect to see you when I come over. Although we're sad, we're also very lucky and grateful we got to have as much time with you as we did. Also, I'm happy you got to see us all grow up pretty much. We love you forever and ever and of course never gonna forget you no matter what.
Love KiKi, Sharmond and Riley
