Nona will remain in my heart forever as my best friend. She had a heart for the Lord and lived her life for Him. Now she is with Him.

Vince, Please accept our sincere sympathy at the passing of your Mom. She, being my first cousin, and I, had lots of great memories of the “yesteryears”. Growing up, I played the preacher and she played the imaginary piano out there in the barn. What a special time we had. May God comfort you Vince, and give you sweet peace. And, one of these days, when it’s our time to go, we will have the greatest of reunions, seeing Jesus, our Savior, and seeing our precious family. Praying for you all. Charles & Bess Kirby, Lakeland, FL

That is my grandmother, she was the best woman in the universe, I love her more than I could explain I wish I was still living with her. She was funny, clean, beautiful, best personality, and best of all my grandma. I miss her cooking, laugh, smile, her stories, teaching me how to play the piano, her smell, but most of all her. She's in a better place now, but I'm certainly not without her in my life. I wish she could have been able to stay a bit longer. She's the reason I got babtised and became who I was. She taught me to be kind to people even if they're mean to you. Something she always told me was "Sometimes you can't let go of the things that make you sad and that's ok, because those are the things that make you happy". But she was one of the biggest things that made me happy, and now I will never be as happy as I was when she was still here. I will forever remember her even when I pass.
