If you ever witnessed my mother's laugh, then you know it was contagious.
If you ever heard my mother say the words, I love you, know that when she loved, she loved with everything in her.
If she believed in you, encouraged you or prayed for you, she loved you.
If you witnessed my mother fight for you, know that she only fought for what she believed in, so she believed in you.
If you witnessed my mother's strength and determination through life's triumphs, know that in the end she gave it her all. She may not be with us now but she is watching over us in heaven.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, any condolences or gifts may be sent to the family at 269 Cat Island Dr., Columbia, LA 71418.
