    Aunt Eunice was always there and available to help in any way needed. Her chocolate pies were definitely one of my dads favorites!! She and Marvin left a wonderful legacy with all of you. God Bless!!

    My heart has been filled with grief since you left us but I know you have gone to a better place. No more pain or suffering. Over the years we have had some good times.. Going shopping with you is where I developed a desire to go to the mall on my days off. I have certainly missed those days. I always enjoyed coming to your house. My prayer is that you will be happy in heaven when you meet our family and friends that have already gone on. I will miss and think of you often. RIP, love you.

    She was not only my sister, but my best friend. I loved her and will miss her but I can only imagine how happy she must be now……We enjoyed so many special times together, and those special sister talks are tucked deep in my heart.

    She was my mother-in-law and we had our differences over the 46 years I knew her but she was always there for me. When I had my first daughter she would come by the house and bring an entire meal for us and clean up the house while on her way to work. I always admired how hard she worked. She could put a meal on the table for 30 people in 45 minutes and never once complained. I loved her very much and will miss her unique ways. She was a jewel.
