And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.When tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart. For every time you think of me, I'll be right there in your heart.

203 Mill Street has so many memories for me as a child. This was my first home, the home that I shared with you Aunt Phyllis. As a child I never looked at you as an aunt but more as a big sister and you treated me like the pesky little brother that would mess with your stuff when you were away. I looked up to you as I would watch you handle the guys at the Rosenwald basketball court. To this day I believe had there been a WNBA you would have played pro ball. Remembering the day you got married to uncle Larry I cried because I thought he was taking my "big sister" from me but in all actuality I was gaining a good man as a uncle.I am still in disbelief that you are gone because the last text message I got from you was 3 days before God called you home congratulating my new bride and I on our recent marriage and welcoming her new niece to the family. Big Sis rest easy. Pet Shane for me.Love Rod
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
This is not easy seeing an obituary with your name on it. My mom’s baby sister. Her baby!! Thank you for your love and support these past couple years!! You were and are a great auntie all around!! I will miss you…❤️❤️
