    Thank you for giving me unconditional love. I never made it easy, but you loved me until I learned to love myself. You taught me that I am worthy, you gave me strength and helped me to hold my head high, even when I felt ashamed of my choices. I am relieved that you are no longer suffering from earthly pain, and I promise to ALWAYS do my best to continue to make you proud.

    I will see you on the other side. Keep my place warm up there, as you always kept a safe place for me here. I miss you so much already. I will not say goodbye, but see you later.

    I love you Mama! xxoo

  4. Kellie Miller says:

    Mom will be missed more than I can express. She was the most kindest, living, and gentle person I have ever known. My grief runs twice as deep for her being both my mother and my father. I was so blessed to have so much time with her. It was an honor to care for her and to give back to her, what she gave to me, unconditional love.

    What can I not say about Aunt Ann or to me she was Mataunte a.woman who’s strength and courage we more than anyone could imagine. Her determination to live not just to be here on earth but to LIVE life to the fullest. When you had the pleasure and the privilage to share time with her, you always left with a smile on your face. You were always the important one, not her…she could be feeling miserable but it was more important that she make you feel important and put a smile where a frown was. I can still hear that wonderful.laugh and the words of wisdom she gave me. Heaven received another beautiful angel and welcomed with open arms. You will be missed terribly but our memories.will live on. Truly blessed to have had you oui n my life .

    There have been only a few amazing women in my life, this one right here has always been at the top of my list. She never saw any bad in me and never allowed me to be down on myself. JoAnn and I were hell on her, but she looked right passed that and stayed on us about our self worth. Even into adulthood this beautiful soul made sure that every conversation we had I left believing that I was a beautiful, intelligent and strong woman with a good heart. Aunt Annie, my whole life I have aspired to be half the woman you are. I know in your eyes you believe I am but in mine I need to continue striving to get there. You will be missed and deeply loved always. RIP our Sweet Angel.
