  1. Lesha, I am so very sorry for your loss. Your mother was a beautiful lady, and a special person.

    Aunt Hellen was very special. When I would see her Cadillac sitting in Grandma’s driveway, I could not walk across the street fast enough to see her. She called me ‘Sugar’ and ‘Darlin’ and her favorite expression was, “Hot Dogs”! She made me feel special and I thought she hung the moon. She was bueatiful with her big dimples that exaggerated her dazzling smile. She was always proud of her natural pearly whites and deservingly so, because she could light up a room with her smile. She taught me so many things (how to wear makeup and shop, she always took me shopping) and I admired her like no other. The last time I saw her, the last words I heard her say were: “I love you all.” I believed her; she had a loving heart and she loved her family dearly. I miss her very much but now she is everywhere; many things trigger my memory of her. Love to you Lesha, Britt, Jackie and grandchildren.
