Mona(grammie)was a great grandma to me. I love her so much and miss her more than any one in the world. I remember when she was playing on my trampoline jumping up and down when suddenly she fell and couldn't get up and looked like a ladybug trying to get back to her legs.Then I helped her up and we both started to crack up! I someday look forward to see her again.

She was very popular in high school, and a lovely person.

Mom always had time to listen to me. No matter what kind of day I had she was always happy to hear from me and listen to all my ramblings. I miss our talks so much!!!!

Wow...amazing what happens when you google something. My mom was where I got both my passion and compassion from. Being the daughter of a Baptist preacher is also where I got my hardheadedness and conviction from. Two sentences ending in prepositions, she would not be happy. She lives in and through me as I will through my son. I love you mom.

Quite a lady, and her legacy lives on. Her younger brother, Wilbert, was in the Class of '59.

Grammy and me always had a fun times and I miss her like crazy and wish she was her with me right now and forever but I know shes happy and i am being selfish. And for anyone out there crying don't worry we will be with one day. So enjoy life and always remember she's looking down at us, singing, laughing, and praising GOD. I want to say I love you mommy, daddy, marion, greg, jordan, and all of my family.
