  1. Wish I could of gotten to see great Aunt Mary more often it had been a few years, loved that sweet and funny lady. Praying for the family!

  2. You were always there for us when we needed you. You showed me to love unconditionally and to never give up. You taught me so many great things that shaped me as an adult. I will always remember the prayer you told me as a kid when I went to sleep as I continue that with my own children. I love you

  3. My heart is breaking. Mama Mary, as I've called her since I was a young girl, was like a second Mom to me and she treated me like her own. I was at her house more than mine before the family moved to LA. I went to visit there as often as I could, but sadly not in more recent years. She had a sense of humor like no other! When I would visit them in LA she wouldn't let me head home before making crawfish etouffe for me! Thank you, Mama Mary, for being you, and for all the lessons you taught me that you never knew you did. Fly high and rest easy. I will always love you, as you were one of the most important people in my life. Betty ♥️
