Annette was a true gem! She was like a 2nd mom as I was growing up and even helped me get a good office job as a single mom way back when. I know her daughters and grandkids and great grandkids will miss her terribly..she left a hole in everyone's heart that knew her, but she is home with her Lord and family and friends gone before her. Til we all meet again sweet high and free!!! Love you all Shana, Shelley and familyπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œπŸ’œ

My last grandparent is gone, she has gained her wings. You were a true fighter.
I can't begin to count all the times you were there for me. You were always there to listen and wipe away my tears. You always understood for no other reason than you loved me. My heart will always be filled with many sweet memories of you. You definitely filled my heart with happiness. I truly had the best grandmother in the world. I may have gotten my fiestyness and sass from you and it may have rubbed off on you're great granddaughters as
Thank you for your sacrifices, your care and concern, your love and everything that you have done for me.
Wherever you are, I know you are in a much better place. I will be forever grateful and thankful that you are my grandmother.
There are no goodbyes, wherever you will be in my heart.

Rest In Peace Granny
Love always
Your Granddaughter
