  14. What a Mother. My greatest memory of you goes back to when I played football in High School. On my Senior night my father was not able to walk me down the football field/ or be there. You stepped in and was proud to walk my down the field. Before it all you said” I’m going to walk MY SON down the field. That was and still is a special moment for me because it showed the love and care that you had for me and how proud you were to be apart of my life.

  18. I just want to say Daisy will be truly missed. She was a blessing to all she came in contact with. She always came into the room with a smile, a laugh and beaming positive disposition. She was truly one of a kind. I have never known anyone else that could enter a room the way she did. I really appreciated that quality in her.. she always stayed positive. She was a person that was optimistic and always saw the glass half full. She lived.. really lived on this earth. I know in my heart her energy has finally gone on to the next adventure in the next dimension, I love you Daisy you will always be my extra Auntie. I will see you in the next dimension. I loved your energy, your passion, your creativity, your willingness to dare yourself with new challenges and most of all your beautiful heart. No matter what hardships you faced you overcame them and you never looked like what you had been though.
    Rest in Peace Auntie

    Signed your unofficial niece Cristy..(she called me Little Miss Cristy whenever she saw me no matter how old I got)

  19. I’m sure going to miss my Aunt Daisy I remember when her and me went fishing she loved to fish and can tell some jokes that will make your side hurt. She will always be with me in my heart as well as my mind he memories will last a life time.❤️🙏
