Rodney, Renée & Binky, please know that you are in my prayers and the prayers of my family. I only have fond memories of your mother. She was such a kind and strong woman. As a mother it was evident that she loved, protected and raised your all to be exceptional individuals. I know your hearts are heavy, but rest assured she's in a better place. My words may not ease the pain but remembering her love for you surely will.

My deepest condolences to the family during your bereavement. Gerald was a great lady and like a mom to me. Enjoyed the years I was apart of the family. May God's confronting angels be encamped around you during this time.
