  1. My heart is heavy from missing your smile, laughter and beautiful spirit. While I wish you were still here I know that God has need of you to be a guardian to watch over us here on earth. The memories you left will keep us smiling until we see you again.

    Aunt Peaches/Rosie say hello to everyone! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

  2. My Godmother /Mother,

    I don’t think there is enough paper that will hold all that I would want to say about you. You are my Godmother, my Mother, & Aunt. You are also my friend that I could share my most inner feelings with. The things that you and I shared were only between you and me. You were always my problem solver. You always helped me to see the light of things that I couldn’t understand. Just hearing your laughter would lighten my heart. Maybe when you see Thelma she will hear your laugh. Good blessed you with four girls, Minnie, Dora, Deborah, and Beverly. I am Annie Pearl, which made five. It is so hard to say goodbye to you because of what you have been to all of us. God called you home to rest and he knew we will see you later.

    Love Annie Pearl

  3. Mom, you have been my rock and a shining example of what it means to be loving, generous and kind. I will miss you so much. I will miss your laughter, your smile and your touch. Even with the struggles you experienced over the last few years, I’ve enjoyed the time I was able to spend with you each week. You slipped away from us and left us in deep sorrow but we will meet again in the distant tomorrow. Sleep on Mom and take your rest, we all loved you but God loved you best.

    Love Always
    Minnie (Babysister)

  4. Gone too soon,
    I was your little shadow for soo long,
    You were more than a grandmother to me,
    At times, you were a mother, a friend, and a fighter if need be.
    You were there everyday to drop us off and pick us up no matter how we begged to walk home
    I left for college and left one of my best friends behind
    I talked to you daily year in and year out
    I heard the change in our conversations and knew that soon our conversations would change and be more of a memory than reality
    As alzheimers set in no matter how all over the place the conversations were I still would egg you on and worry your last nerve like time hadn’t changed a thing.
    As bad as it hurt to have you leave here under these circumstances, I know that you are in a far better place than we are right now.
    Your soul is no longer tired,
    Until we see each other again I love you with all my heart ❤❤

  5. Aunt Peaches, you will truly be missed. I will always cherish the memories….from 95th St, Van Wick, and all the family functions. Till we meet again

    Love Latrice “Tricie”, “Trice”❤

  6. We want to offer our condolences and love to our extended family during your time of bereavement. We pray that you all find strength through all prayers that are prayed on your behalf. We love you and will be there with you in spirit. May God bless you!

  7. In loving memory of the woman I called Aunt Peaches. She was a true positive inspiration to me. Watching her as a child and listening to her wisdom helped shape the women I am today. Thank you my sweet and kind elder for modeling what a women should be. To my cousin’s her four daughters and their children I love you all. I’m here if you need me. You will continue to be in my prayers.

  8. Hey Grandma, I’m not to good with things like this but I just wanted to say that you showed me throughout the years what having somebody who truly loved you no matter what meant. All the times you use to fuss at me just to turn around and say you loved me. Your favorite line to me was “that’s my boy” with a huge kiss followed behind it. Can’t forget all the good times we shared from the house during our holidays or camping for school break. Every moment was special because you brought it all together. Oh and that little trick how you use to mix the didn’t peanut butter and jelly together way before they came out when it in a jar lol. I really didn’t get a chance to say good bye, but this isn’t good bye this is I’ll see you later and watch over Us all we need it now more than ever before. With nothing but love always

  9. I have so much to say but not enough space to tell how much you meant to me. What I’m going to miss is you calling me over to fix little things around your house but most of all the meals you fixed as payment. Also all those fishing trips we took watching you cutting your path to water shorelines saying I’m going to catch that big fish over there. Something I’ll always remember is when Minnie and I were dating while in college you said she had to finish her education and you told her to break up with me and that she did. I want to thank you for allowing me to marry her later I knew she was the one for me.

    Love you forever
    Jeffery-the son you always wanted

  10. I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort, keep and give you peace beyond. Praying for your family at this most difficult time.

  11. Rest in Heaven Aunt Peaches, We Love You!!!. Love Bobbie, Paula(Tasha), Jacqueline(Jackie), Margaret (Renee), Ronnie (Jr.)

  12. Aunt Peaches,

    As difficult as it is knowing you are no longer with us, I have to take comfort in the fact that you are now in a better place. Most importantly, I take comfort in knowing that there will be a lifetime of memories with you in them that will remain with me for as long as I’m on this earth. Thank you for not only being a great aunt to me but for embracing my wife and two sons who think the world of you as well. You will unquestionably be missed, but never forgotten.

    I love you dearly

  13. To my Aunt Peaches, I remember those moments when you guys would come to Natchitoches and daddy (Sonny) would bring us to Papa’s house to see the family. It was truly never a dull moment around all of you. Your tenderness and care for your family was and truly a blessing to all that was around you. Thank you for being such a strong woman. We love you from your Great niece Nikia aka Nikki.

  14. I will My Aunt deeply many do not know how close we were she meant much to me I can only remember the times that we spent in Natchitoches her home town and mind and the few times I spent with her Los Angeles it was great I love my Auntie I will miss you until we meet again
