ðŸ˜˜ Love you bunches Mamaw! I know I'll get to see you again some day. Til then Xoxo
After we lost our mother I could always count on her. I could cry on her shoulder. Every time I looked at her I saw my mother in her. The last time I talked to her she told me she was ready for God to take her home. Iâ€™m glad her suffering is over. I will miss her so much.
I love you, Grandma. Iâ€™ll always remember singing, â€œHeâ€™s Still Working on Meâ€ with you and â€œIâ€™ll Fly Awayâ€. Well, you get to fly away and be home and in peace. Give my daddy some extra hugs from me â¤ï¸
A lovely lady who will be missed by many
Ms Helen was a very sweet woman and I'm gonna miss her..I loved her and still do..Praying for you all...
She was loved by many people, including people in the church, and her family, she always took care of other people before putting herself first. There are so many memories many people have with her and they are loved memories as well.
Sis Matlock was a precious Lady, a true Christian. Always loved her. So sorry for this loss but happy for Heavenâ€™s gain. Rejoicing with her sister, Sis Abbott, and my mother, Sis Lucille Taylor. Prayers for the family!
