    Auntie you were all ways there for me. Your home was open to all of us day and night. When I was going through a difficult time with my Michael. You called or came to Children’s Hospital to see him and rock him to sleep. you had everyone in the city of Quincy praying for him .
    I thank you for that and much more I’ll miss your smile and sence of humor. I love you Auntie
    your God child
