    Your loss is immeasurable. You were the kindest and most selfless woman who raised an amazing son. A cherished mother in law.

    Always thought we’d see each other again in our old age. I had no idea you were not doing well. I miss our FB talks and connections. I’m so glad we had a chance to reconnect through your son, and I promise to stay connected to him. I will always cherish our youth together with Michael Sr. and Barbara, all of the GREAT fun we had. I love you and rest well. Thank you for being a part of my life. 🙏🏾💔💔
