    Becky, Regina, and Franklin,

    Becky and I were saddened to learn of the loss of your dear mother. Aunt Arie was a wonderful sister to my mom, especially when they moved to Savannah. Seeing her at my mom’s funeral was heart warming. I regret that I am not able to be with you for the services. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Take care and God bless you.

    I am so sorry to hear of Aunt Arie’s passing! She was so loved by her family and graciously returned that love to each of us, making each person feel so special! I have so many wonderful, sweet memories of Aunt Arie especially her delicious meals and sweet tea! Regina, there are no words for all you did for her! God will surely Bless You for it! You are all in my prayers in the days ahead as you lay this angel to rest! She was the Best!
    Love You All So Much♥️


    Regina, I am so sorry to hear of your mother passing on Saturday. I saddened for you but not surprised. Since your Mama’s recent stroke, I have heard in your voice your extra concern for her health. Your Mama would not have wanted to stay here in a health crisis situation that depended on someone(you in particular) doing everything for her. My own Mama passed one day before her 95th birthday. We both have been Blessed to have the Mamas we had and we both did everything possible to take care of them without ever needing to place them in a Nursing Facility. Remember all the fond memories and laughter you shared. I have watched you through the years put everyone in your family before you. You can look in your mirrors everyday and know you did everything you could for your Mama. I will see you at the services tomorrow. Love you Regina.

    Aunt Arie always brought us smiles when we visited, many years ago. Her children, my cousins, Regina, Becky and Franklin are fine examples of her Christian upbringing.

    Just the thought of her gone from us is sad, but knowing we will see her again bringing her smile back to us.

    May God bless us all!
