Mom, where do i begin??? I love you more than you could ever imagine. I miss you like crazy but you gave me my birthday gift a little early... your suffering came to an end. It was hard to say "goodbye, until we meet again" but it was much harder knowing that you were uncomfortable and unable to do anything. You are such an amazing woman. Extremely strong, loving, caring, ( grumpy xoxooxoxo) BEAUTIFUL inside and out. I thank you for giving me life so that i could get to know you and be by your side until you took your last breath. It was quite a journey, filled with happy times and sad times. I do wish the sad, unhappy times were fewer but we can't turn back time so i just want to say i'm sorry for the things i said and did that bothered you or hurt you. I'm pretty sure i was forgiven in the end. I hope you are happier now than ever before and hope you continue to look after me as I continue down Life's road without you physically by my side. You will forever be in my heart and on my mind. I love you Mommy!!! RIP my beautiful Angel! XOXOXO

My heart goes out to the family. Blanche was my dearest friend since childhood and I will always treasure her memory. She always told things like they were. never beating around the bush. She was the sister that I had never had. I will forever remember her with great love and I will miss her terribly.

My deepest sympathy to Tammie and her family. I've known Blanche for over 17 years, I met Blanche, at SMMC, where I was a cook, and she had worked as a tray attendant. When she started working there we grew a great friendship, she was always kind, funny, and also a people person. I loved her so much, as the few years i've worked with her, I started calling her aunt Blanche, and she liked that, as she started getting sick, and didn't see her much, we've begin penpaling, she never missed my birthdays, always sending me letters, in between all that i'd see her at shopping marts, always embraced Blanche when i'd see her, something i'll never forget, what a beautiful person she is, I love you Blanche, and I will never forget you, thanks for having me in your life. love Bruce.

Nana, you mean the absolute world to me. We fought nonstop, and I always aggravated you, but I totally regretted it. I'm so glad you're not suffering anymore, and you're now in heaven with all the people you had lost, and with The Lord. I could tell you anything, and we had SO much fun together. I'm extremely sorry I was so mean to you as I got older, I just didn't like seeing you sick. The memories: Farkle, Going grocery shopping, Baking, and just being with each other. I feel so lost without you, and I know mom does too, but no need to worry about us, we'll be okay. I promise I will be nicer to mom, and try to get along with her better. Nana, you were such a beautiful lady. Always smiling, ready to meet new people, always spoke your mind, so strong- You lived a good life. I love you Nana, and I will never, EVER forget you. Rest in Peace Nana Banana.
