My deepest condolences for the family. My thoughts and prayers are with you forever. I have known Sis for over 60 years and she was the sweetest lady ever, There were 8 children in the family until I came along and I was accepted into the family. Sis treated me just like her own sisters and made me feel safe and wanted there. I was there more than home and Sis always treated me like just like family. Sis was one of the nicest, most gentle , kind, giving, thoughtful and loving young ladies I have had the privilege to know and be a part of her life. Sis was also one my older sister’s best friends, so I was fortunate to have Sis at both my home and her home as well. You will be greatly missed and thought of often.. GOD BLESS YOU AND REST IN PEACE. LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART THE LITTLE FRECKLE FACE KID NOW ALL GROWN UP DEBBIE ❤️????✝️❤️

I am truly saddened to hear about the passing of Shirley (Sis). I will keep the entire family in my thoughts and prayers..May you find comfort knowing that she is at peace and is smiling down on all of you. My fondest memory of her is when I went along for the ride with her and John to Middlesex to look at the house that they were going to buy..RIP Shirley .. ❤️✝️?

There's not enough words in the dictionary to describe my big sister. You were my big sister and my closest friend. We told each other our happy times and our bad times. We laughed together hysterically and then we would cry to each other when things were unbearable. I knew if something was said it went no further then our ears. My heart is totally broken and I know you're not suffering anymore but that don't take the pain away. You knew I loved you and when I see you again I'll be able to tell you. Until that day I'll miss you. Love you Sis. ?❤️?

My beautiful momma. Today was the hardest day of my life. I can not believe our life has been turned up side down like this. You were supposed to come home, we were making all this happen. I promise to do everything in life to take care of Dad and to make you proud. I will miss all our times together. I love you bigger than the sky, always and forever till the end of time.??? your daughter Rhondee ???
